Artist's Description

As Promised here the history and research into this now finished peace.

Lilith first apears in the babalonion document “The Heillupu Tree” This was put down in cuniform some 2500 year befor christ which would make it about 4509 years old give or take. In this document she has taken up resedence in the Tree Inanna wishs to make her throne from.
Since then she has had many names and disciptions among these are
“Maid of Desolation”, “Former Queen Of Heven” and "The Maidern of Darkness In 2000bce Lilith is first called a Sucubuss and linked to the name The Night Hag.
Since then she has gone on to become The Snake Witch in Paradise Lost
The Worlds Black Soul to Victor Hugo and to Solermon she was Obizoth

How Lilith came into being in its self leaves me with more questions than anwsers as what is writen about her in the Zohar has lead to much contumplation.
Fist of all some belive that adam and Lilith where both made from clay but when adam saw how she was created god took her away.
Whilst others see Adam and Lilith as one entatie at first back to back male and female.
But the best known story is that Adam wished dominion over Lilith when she saw herself as equal had she not been created in the same way but as Adam sort her obedeance Lilith uttered the magical name of god and rose into the air.
At this God sent three angels after Lilith, these where the origenal Cherabin, forget cute babys with wings and harps, these where the tooled up SAS of Angles the name of which are
Senoy, Sansenoy and Semangcof and they where to bring her back dead or alive, but then i guess male angles dont read the small print.
When they caught up with Lilith she was making other like herself and pointed out that angles cannot kill an emortal
God had given Lilith the task of taking charge of all newborns, forever which as the stealer of men and babys we should be glad they excepted a compremise
and that is why a medal with the angles names is placed above a babys crib
