Succubi Image of the Week 117

This is the third week of a series of artwork by a single artist that I am going to share from Deviantart. They have created a series of Succubi images using some of the most well known names in Succubi mythology…

The artist is known as Genzoman and this third image in the series is called Naamah…

Genzoman’s Deviantart site can be found here.

And you can find the original page with this work here on Deviantart as well.

Naamah is a succubus and fallen angel, and is regarded as an aspect or relation of Lilith. Naamah is said to have engaged, like Lilith, in intercourse with Adam. According to tradition, she was created directly by God, like Eve or Lilith. Naamah and Lilith lived in the Red Sea coast where they were expelled by God. Naamah’s appearance is similar to Lilith, but Lilith is more sensual, young and beautiful.

This particular work of Genzoman’s is almost as dramatic as the one of Lilith. Naamah is posed in mid-flight, leaving what I think appears to be the arms and hands of those in hell or something similar to that… I like how she is portrayed as having some of the same features as her sisters in the series, though I think she looks somewhat more mature than the others do…

Of the four images that Genzoman created in this series, one is not my favorite mostly  for the bottom of the image, it seems too violent for a Succubus to me, but that is a matter of taste mostly I think…

Please do visit Genzoman’s Deviantart page to see all of the wonderful art he has created!

Next week… the last of this series, Eisheth Zenunim.

    To me, it isn’t so much violent as a proclamation of freedom, as she breaks those chains and leaves behind whoever is attempting to drag her down.

    That’s an interesting comment my heart.. But I am not sure that matches with her mythos or not to be honest…
