Vanities are sins of the heart, and the Devil says that they are his favorite sin. The famous Old English poem, “All is vanity”, tells of a young woman admiring herself in a mirror held by the devil. An 18th century painting by Nicolas Tournier, An Allegory of Justice and Vanity, depicts a young woman holding a balance, representing justice, while she is not looking at a mirror or skull. In addition, some believe that the Girl with a Pearl Earring represents the vice of vanity.
