- Physical description:
- Printed reproduction art print.
- Museum classification:
- 29.5cm x 21cm
This picture imaginatively depicts Lilith as a human/animal hybrid with many of the animals associated with witchcraft and ancient Goddess worship such as the owl and the snake.
In some versions of the Bible/Hebrew mythology, Lilith is Adam's first wife. She was made from clay at the same time as Adam and was his equal (not made from his rib and his subordinate like Eve). She was disobedient/independent. Medieval legends said that all witches were derived from Lilith.
Lilith is now recognised as a Goddess by many modern witches.
