The intriguing figure of Lilith appears in many religious traditions and myths. The most known story describes her as the first wife of Adam, who was created equal and refused to submit herself to him. Lilith fled from the Eden and became a lover to demons. Lilith can be seen as the dark side of the feminine principle, although this doesn’t have a negative or “evil” connotation. In my conception, Lilith is the assertive, non-conformist, and confident part of the feminine self. She teaches us self-respect for our inner Goddess. Here, Lilith holds a cracked mask that symbolizes all the roles imposed over women by society and religions – be submissive, be good-looking, be a wife, etc Those roles don’t represent us in our wholeness, and have been stifling our creativity and self-expression and creating a culture of conformism that have been disastrous for the development of an equalitarian society.

    Came back to ask a question: how long does it take for you to finish an artwork? They are all so highly detailed and intricate.

  • hi Erika, thanks for stopping by! i usually spend one week in a project this size (15 × 20 inches), if i am not working on something else… not sure about how many hours… some days i work longer, in others i don’t feel motivated enough… but i usually complete it within one week.
