Jeweler's Polished Bronze Sumerian Feminist Goddess Lilith Pendant
in Polished Bronze
1-3/4 inches high x 1 inch wide
Bronze pendant based on a Sumerian clay table relief from 2000 BC. She wears the horned crown that marks her as a Goddess not a demon in Sumerian mythology. Lilith appears in Sumerian, Babylonian, Assyrian, Canaanite, Persian, Hebrew, Arabic and Teutonic mythology. She is also known as Adam's "first wife" who refused to "lie beneath."
In the oldest mythologies she is a Goddess and in later stories she is demonized. Lilith is a motherless form of the divine feminine even known to some as the wife of Yahweh.
As the embodiment of the neglected, outcast and rejected aspects of the Great Goddess she calls women to rise up in strength to reclaim their own divinity.
