Station: [503] Lilith

  • Hexenmuseum Schweiz

Lilith. First wife of Adam, and equal to him, both made in the image of Elohim (god/dess). She holds the rod and ring of Sumerian royalty. Lions and owls symbolize her power and wisdom. Levite priests who assembled the Bible called Lilith a demon, most likely due to her assertive behavior at a time when male dominance was relatively new. Lilith was considered powerful by Babylonians, Hebrews, and Muslims alike. Some scholars name her as Ishtar or Erishkegal. [Coville collection, c.2300 BCE]
