Lilith grows long hair.

b. Nidda 24b

Lilith is a demoness with a human appearance except that she has wings.


In the tale "The Evocation" by Thorp McClusky,

Lilith is described in the following way:

"The apparition was becoming a transparent but well-defined female shape with exquisite proportions.
She was wearing an ancient tiara and her smile was a curved menace, devilishly seducing, as the lovableness of her delicate and dignified features.

She had no colours, she was a simple light shape; however Farrel felt that her hair had to be black with bluish veins and that her slightly aquiline face, her pretty curved shoulders and her thin arms should have a warm olive shade.

Lilith, the Dancer's Daughter, the Queen of the Lilin ...
The apparition became more and more definite, and finally there she was, at the pentagon's center, a woman of incredible beauty.

The Presence, the Queen of Lilin, was now transparent ... then translucent ... in the end dull, solid and -in spite of her ghost origin- apparently of flesh and blood.

Her exquisite exotic features were charming and nobody in the world had ever dreamt of her beauty for a lot of years.

Lilith, who smiled from the pentagon, was a so forgotten beauty that she couldn't even exist as a remote memory; Lilith, the immortal Queen of all moonlit nights, the Queen of the Lilin, who danced in front of Suleiman, whom prayer and peace are with!

She smiled with a slow and carmine charm. Her dark eyes with long eyelashes had no fear. Her thin arms moved as twin nacre snakes when she stroked the night of her long raven hair.

Lilitu! Agrat bat Mahhat! (Lilith! The Dancer's Daughter!)"


In all times Lilit has served as muse for artists… There are countless pieces of art devoted to Lilit… Due to limitations, on this page I’m bringing only a few beloved ones :)
