    If not down the hole, why not climb the wall.

    I wasn't quite sure what to post in this discussion a few days ago but just this morning I ran into
    something that rather amazed me.

    Yeh
    In the sculptors forum, mark started posting pictures of the clay as it progressed.
    He sculpted the walker and the eel separately. When he combined them, he added the caress.
    I told him that the caress took it over the top for me and was a great finishing touch.
    I think that he makes his living from the figurines.
    and
    Of all the things he's done,(he really is rather prolific) the eel walker is my favorite.
    great stuff.

    .................................
    the pix of mine was when isis was still in the clay
    I started her with a model named Amy-----then i got busy with the business---and when I came back to isis, Amy had left town.
    That pose may not look hard, but it is, and 4 models that I asked to pose for it couldn't do it-----It sat for over a year-----during that time, I added Osiris and Horus in her hair---and then I found a great model---(2 actually---they were almost identical twins---one was a tad heavier/sturdier/stronger---and this was reflected in their stomach musculature. When I asked the model of the day about this, she confessed her twinship...and said that when one couldn't make the gig, the other one stood in for her---
    Both really good models who enjoyed their work(it's great working with someone who enjoys their work)----darned if I can remember their names.

    I am guessing that you probably know all about the Jewish tradition of LLT -Lilith who is supposed to have rivalled Eve for the attention of Adam. Rumour has it that she and Adam had a fling that lasted more than a century.

    Lilith didn't merely rival Eve; and it wasn't merely a fling.

    Lilith was Adam's first wife.

    And disobeyed him .
    That's why she had to become a demon a relegated to the underworld in favor of Eve, who managed to corrupt Adam by offering him the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge.

    It's all very confusing. Who is the good guy/gal and who is the bad guy/gal. Round and round it goes, where it stops nobody knows.

    Let's not be smart

    "Lilith appears as Adam's first wife, who was created at the same time (Rosh Hashanah) and from the same clay as Adam"
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lilith

    Not a bad looker

    So God created humankind
    in the image of God created them;
    male and female god created them.
