      'De Hoogmoed'. One of the seven sculptures by the well-known Dutch artist Peer Veneman.

Peer Veneman (1952. The Netherlands) gave sculptural forms to very great anger, envy, strong desire for success and power, pride, greed for money more than the human being really need and bad habits of drinking and eating too much through his creation the Seven cardinal Sins in 1999.
The 'Vrije Universiteit'- Free University- in Amsterdam exhibit his sarcastic art with its timeless theme and gives a significant humanistic view to seven deadly sins in it's Exposorium (20.04.2014- 21.05-2014).


 Full of pride and desires for great power and ability to control people and special believers the one of the seven Veneman's cardinal sins appearing to be...
 enthusiasm for the opportunity to show its glory in Exposorium-Exhibition.
Part of the Seven sculptures the bronze sculpture 'De Hoogmoed" as explained  the curator Exposorium and VU collection drs Hendriekje Bosma, come to rest on surface in front of the VU as an original example of its nature. The figure seemingly to have an endless list of complains is standing there as a reformer without society..



His big head has no face and his breast is empty of feelings. He is authentically representing the 'Seven deadly sins'.
