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.

perfection ... the story is wrong they distorted her much of our imbalance is because of this historic distortion she is not just a wife but the creatrix ... Gaia the True Creator of All on this planet not some lone man in the sky ... Gaia who also has a being some called Lilith in truth she does not desire name or limits or bounds but to dream our limitlesss timeless spacelesss ness into existance

This reminds me of the Light witch from Game of Thrones. Almost as if you used her for a reference.

Not everything you read is true. Lilith, like Adam, are watchers, are of before this Earth was created. On the far left, you have her portrayed with horns, as if she is, in part, a Djinn. Can you explain the horns? Great work.
