Lilith’s Shawl

Mediums, Matter and Creative Practice

“. . . We are [working to] free [Sophia’s] radiance from the darkness of matter.
“. . .the laws of the world of matter (nature) are not the laws of the world of psyche (soul) [but] images apply to both worlds. They are the connectors. Image making connects the material and spiritual worlds . . .
“. . . We humans can be conscious mediators between matter and spirit, we can use our brains and hands and feet and hearts to manipulate things and meaning into life.” (Marion Woodman)

Lilith’s Shawl appeared as a ritual item. The work invokes the ancient Sumerian Goddess Lilith and invites her presence as a revered ancestral spirit. The shawl as costume invites mediumship, enabling the wearer’s expression of her energy and power.
