The Lilith Print... Who is Lilith?


 Lilith is a female figure in Mesopotamian and Judaic mythology. In some sources, she is conceived of as the original woman, created before Eve and deemed demonic for disobeying Adam.

Lilith means “the night,” and she embodies the emotional and spiritual aspects of darkness: terror, sensuality, and unbridled freedom.

According to Hebrew folklore, Lilith, the first wife of Adam was banished from Eden for refusing to be subservient to her husband.

She has come to represent the freedom of feminist women who no longer wants to be “the good girl”; she defies patriarchy and refuses marriage altogether, preferring to become a demon rather than live under Adam’s authority.
