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...

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"!
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
the facial expression reminds me of that of banshies(sp?) Covering ear and running through the wild..the tones of green and over growth make this so wild and enchanting though..i really love the hell out of this as i always do
This is by far one of the best series of photographs I have seen in a long long time....great work, I also like how you are using Lilith...she's such a great character with so much potention, it's a shame she doesn't come up more often.
heals? hm..i guess that kinda looks like heals...
tho...no. no actual heals, she was just on her toes..... but point well taken. Now that I see it, I can't unsee it.... something i probably will take care of.... thank you...
I absolutely adore this series.
There's something characteristically primal about your subject and the texturisation of the pieces creates this prevalent visual continuity in the images. The tones and shades you use in the process add this immensity to it, a strange elvel of depth and morbidity in the obvious despair.
