The Latin title can be translated to 'The damned craving for gold'.
In this - our constant quest for appraisal and gold in a world of haste and big spending. With a reference to Pavlov's dogs and how our surroundings influence our behaviour, desires, and needs.
In the background is a sketch from a Japanese shopping mall and at the front a model from a fashion designer's sketchbook. The little girl looks with envy at the model but does she anything to be envious of? She herself is completely drawn.
Somewhere at the bottom the title is lying around.
Acrylic and coal on canvas.
