Sometimes art is a self-portrait of a girl who is soooo upset to have nice things.

Clara Peeters paints herself in this Vanitas-esque self-portrait. Vanitas is Latin for “emptiness,” and generally casts away the silly frivolity of earthly possessions for something of a higher, more divine nature.

Sure, Clara. From the looks of things, you hate all the gold and silver life’s provided. Look, she even tipped over the dish, guys. She really must not want it now.
