[HNW] Virtues & Vices

Albrecht Durer's woodcuts - he did a number of allegorical things; I *think* the Virtues & Vices were among them.
 
Probably searching religious allegory will get better results than needlework refs.  Here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Seven_Deadly_Sins_and_the_Four_Last_Things
is a link to Hieronymous Bosch's take on the Sins.
 
Here:
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cardinal_virtues
are some woodcuts of virtues.
 
Hope this helps.
