Lilitu was a Goddess before "Adam" ever "existed". She refused to submit Her power to the conquering patriarchal war God of the Hebrews, Yahweh. (And refused to lay UNDER Adam during sex.) And so she is remembered in myth as the first rebel--one who dared to defy the will of "God" and was punished for her lack of submission. She has every right to be angry, and so do we...

her expression is unique, and the work you've done to the photo emphasizes and fits perfectly into it.

wow... going from the Outcast piece to this works too perfectly. its a wonderful way to illustrate the transition that took place. the darker, colder, colors are simple and well used... they alone really set a mood here. but, that wild, half-crazy look on the face of Lilith is what gets me everytime i look at this. talk about "if looks could kill"! :D

oh yeah, in the upper left corner, there is a scratch or something that looks like a tiny fingernail moon... i love that because it makes this wilderness seem a little bit "off" compared to what we may usually envision. of course, the way the surrounding darkness is encroaching into Lilith's personal space seems to allude to becoming powerless.

lovely work again man.. as seems to always be the case :D

Lilith is an inspiration for me- as is this shot. I really love the darker tones of blue and green (as much as I love your warmer tones). It tells a story-

Awesome Kevin-

ps- found you on OMP- I recognized a photo of yours and there you were! My profile is under #59037 :) Someday here when I get the mulah, I'll join as a photographer. Until then...
