7 Deadly Sins: Avaritia (b&w)

Challenge #3 in the Sevens series. Hosted by mschf.
Challenge has finished
The 7 Deadly Sins, used since the advent of Christianity, are the most objectionable vices which beckon humans to sin (more info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_deadly_sins). This challenge explores "avaritia" (also known as "greed"), its most basic definition being "an extreme pursuit of wealth, status, and power". There are numerous ways to interpret this with imagery and it is now up to your creativity and perhaps a little research to come up with something that portrays this "deadly sin".
