Lilith

Oil on illustration board. Framed.

Done for the 3rd annual Month of Love challenge on Monthofloveart.com. The challenge theme was “Forbidden Fruit”.

“Lilith” has always been one my favorite characters from ancient myth. (mainly hebrew, but versions of her seem to stem first from Sumeria)

The story is this:  Lilith was created before Eve out of the earth, like Adam, but refused to lay under him and was expelled from Eden. Depending on who you ask, she is either a goddess or mother of demons. Because love has so many dualities, I decided she should be both and neither.
