I was thinking about what would represent Hunger (previously I shared an image for Mischief):

Tantalus is an excellent stand in for Hunger. He upset the gods so they put him deep in Hades, desperately thirsty and ravenously hungry. When he stoops down to drink from the water at his feet, it runs away. When he reaches up for the fruit hanging above his head, the tree stretches out of his grasp.
