Artwork Title: Lilith - Artist Name: John Collier


John Collier, 1887

"Lilith was Adam's first wife, but she refused to be submissive because she and Adam were made separate but equally of God made Eve from Adams rib." "...she is a figure of terror, feared as a demon or vampire, and a night monster... also known as Lamia; Keats describes her as a serpent which assumed the shape of a beautiful woman 'palpitating snake... of dazzling hue, vermillion spotted, golden, green and blue'..."
