The Picture of Dorian Gray

The man sins, the picture becomes distorted! Is this a play on the religious principle of the soul decaying through man's transgressions? Were we only able to see our souls - just as Dorian Gray saw the transformation of his painting, it might be a major deterrant to wrong doing. I think that the painting was a symbol of man's soul in this story.
