'Lilith'-A handcarved limited edition linocut print. Printed as an edition of 50 on 280gsm Fabriano Rosaspina paper.

Made for the 'Linocut Coven' project, the image alludes to the story of Lilith, regarded as the first witch. She gained independence from Adam in The Garden of Eden and appears in cultural myths as a powerful figure. Lilith is sometimes referred to as the first feminist.

The print also references symbols associated with the occult and magic such as the hand of mysteries, the Hamsa or third eye, and celestial stars/moon. Herbs and flowers associated with folklore and witchcraft medicines/potions appear around the hand: belladonna, hemlock, moonflowers, henbane, elder berries, and hawthorn.

Unframed.

A lover of the natural world, Cally's prints are inspired by nature and folklore. She is based in London, but is constantly drawn to the beauty of nature and its place within the world.
She began producing etchings and collagraphs at art college, and came to linocut printmaking much later.
She really fell in love with the process of linocut; something about the carved line as a way to translate her sketches, and to explore pattern and texture.

This print is shown at Atelier Beside the Sea as part of the Bloom Exhibition.
