Kiki Smith - Lilith, 1994 - Bronze, silicon, and glass.

“In medieval Jewish lore, Lilith was Adam’s first wife.  When she demanded to be Adam’s equal, she was evicted from the Garden of Eden.  Lilith flew away to the demon world, replaced by the more submissive Eve.  Smith catches us off guard with Lilith’s pose and placement.  Most sculptures receive our gaze passively, but Lilith stares back with piercing brown eyes, ready to pounce.”

hella dope

THANK YOU

my mother told me this story over and over when I was little

"Always be Lilith, never Eve"

The Hour/works of Austrian Painters.
This was born of a serendipitous pairing of this cap and the Klimt drawing in my archives and also because the Schiele drawing has always reminded me of that suit (or rather, the other way around).
Isn’t it weird, though!

Longquan ware vase, made in China in the 2nd half of the 13th century. The gold repairs were made later when the vase was in Japan. (source).

I remember reading about this a few months back. The technique is called Kintsugi. This quote really spoke to me:


“When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something’s suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful.”
