Contemplating Lilith

I worked this image up from several others, a woodblock image, and a plastered wall. The figures are all my wife, Belinda Broughton, but taken several years apart. In the full figure she is performing Lilith. Lilith is a very interesting goddess demon who is portrayed in some myths as being Adam's first wife and in others as a protector of children. In yet other myths she eats children. Take your pick, but she is feisty and strong and she is certainly not subservient to males!

Belinda also has several poems about Lilith which you can read on her blog. The Trouble for Lilith is about her relationship with babies, while Grudges is a more fleshed out poem about her being Adam's first wife and the ensuing issues she had with God.

Hope you enjoy my take on Lilith. She is a very interesting subject matter for me.

Also, if you missed it, I have a Video Wall on this site. It includes short videos about my art, collaborations with my wife, and some art videos by David Salomon about my life and Belinda's poems about me. Go and have a look!

(sorry this image is here twice, it's so Facebook doesn't hash it up when I share it.
