This beautiful painting, titled ‘Lilith’, was painted by John Collier in 1887.

At the end of Chapter 2 of my novel Ama there is a description of a pub sign; ‘Lilith’ was the painting that inspired me to write the following:
“A naked and beautiful woman stood in a graceful yet strong pose, with a large snake entwined around her goddess-like curves—as if the two were sharing an intimate, almost erotic, dance. The woman’s fiery red hair was hanging down in long loose curls, reaching just below her alluring waist.”
