Artist's description:

Mishnaic Hebrew and Aramaic translate the word Mammon to "riches. Christians began to use the name of Mammon as a pejorative, a term that was used to describe gluttony and unjust worldly gain in Biblical literature. The term is often used to refer to excessive materialism or greed as a negative influence.

The love of money is the root of all evil. This has been proven to be true with human trafficking, the drug trade, the pornography industry, illegal arms deals and international terrorism. It also plays a huge role in religion. I therefore painted Mammon as a god being worshipped by people in religious attire.
