The Goddess Lilith has been described as a demon, in other sources she is an icon who became one of the darkest deities of the pagans. Lilith is one of the oldest known female spirits of the world. Her roots predate Babylon, and come from Ancient Mesopotamia, from the famous Epic of Gilgamesh of Sumerian legend, but she was also described in the Bible and the Talmud of Early Jewish text. Lilith is often envisioned as a screech owl, a night spirit, or a dangerous demon who steals babies in the darkness or seduces men and leads them astray. In Jewish folklore she is known as Adam's first wife, created not from his rib but also from the earth. Lilith left Adam after she refused to become subservient and lie beneath him, and then fled the Garden of Eden and coupled with a fallen angel, begetting many demonic offspring called the Lilitu that spread chaos at every turn. Many disasters were blamed on her, causing wine to turn into vinegar, men to be impotent, women unable to give birth, and it was Lilith who was blamed for the loss of infant life. Two primary characteristics are seen in these legends about Lilith: Lilith as the incarnation of lust, causing men to be led astray, and Lilith as a child-killing witch, who strangles helpless neonates. Lilith has connections with early views on vampire and sorcery, and also the Greek Lamia, a woman who became a child-eating monster after her children were destroyed by Hera, who learned of her husband Zeus's trysts with her. "The Lilu, the Lilit, the night Lili, Enchantments, disasters, spells, Illnesses, evil charms, In the name of heaven and in the name of earth Let them be exorcised." ~ from an ancient Babylonian seal Not all aspects of the goddess Lilith have negative or evil connotations. Lilith brings us the message of creative female force, and of a powerful, independent woman. Several early occult writers that contributed to modern day Wicca expressed special reverence for Lilith. Many held her in high regard as a dark moon goddess, praise her as the "First Mother", and also as a sex and fertility goddess. Here is a Goddess that is the symbol of reclaiming Women’s Power, sexuality, and survival. This patch features Lilith, demon goddess, flanked on each side by lions and owls, and is screen printed by hand on a durable black canvas / duck cloth fabric, with white silkscreen ink. The patch measures approximately 8" x 10". Suggested uses: It can be framed and hung on the wall, sewn onto a garment or purse, or placed on an altar to use during ritual to honor the Goddess.
