One of the most morally complex and intriguing products of Hebrew Lore, the demon Lilith has been a long-standing source of interest for me.

Here, in a bid for autonomy from Adam, Lilith makes her bargain with the Great Red Dragon, whose seven heads represent the Seven Deadly Sins. In my depiction, each head is inspired by a different animal.

In the left hand corner, a Seraph looks on, watching the exchange.

"And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads."

- Revelation 12
