    Lilith ~ artist John Collier c.1892, oil on canvas. Lilith was said to be the wife that Adam had before Eve; she is a figure of terror, feared as a demon or vampire, and a night monster. She is 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’, and it is this image which seems to have captured Collier’s imagination. #art #painting #pre_raphaelite

    Lilith by John Collier According to folklore, Lilith was Adam's first wife, and created at the same time as him. Knowing she was his equal, she refused to be subservient, and she left him -- he wouldn't let her be on top -- and went to cavort with demons and archangels. She might be the origin of the saying: Heaven doesn't want me, and hell's afraid I'll take over. Her story is mingles with the legends of vampires and succubi.
