Lilith 
In this tapestry "Lilith", we see lady Lilith wrapped by a serpent, by artist John Collier from 1887. The character of Lilith was thought to be Adam's first wife, in contrast to Eve who was derived from his ribs. This legend was developed further in the medieval period and in writings of the 13th century described her as the lover of archangel Samuel, a fallen angel and chief angel of the fifth heaven, who represents both good and evil in Talmudic legends, and whom left Adam and the Garden of Eden as she would not be subservient to him. The figure of Lilith has been used in many other cultures and literature since. The work of Collier is seen here with his mastery of portraying both fantasy and romanticism. The serpent wrapping around her alludes to her close association with Samuel and to her mysterious role as the first wife of Adam originally made from the clay. This medieval tapestry "Lilith" is backed with a lining and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.

Ordered a tapestry to very short timescales just before Christmas... not expecting to receive before the New Year. Extremely surprised when it arrived just before Christmas during all the really snowy weather

...& even more surprised at the high quality of the tapestry. I am now about to place an order for another tapestry for my daughter's 18th birthday.

Highly recommended!
