The study of succubi or devil women isn’t exactly a passion of mine, but I have found myself visiting them in my art over the years. Halloween seems like an appropriate day to share this gallery. Most of these pieces are older, some as far back as 8 years ago. Happy Halloween ~ Michael
A succubus is a Lilin-demon with lineage that traces as far back to Lilith of the Mesopotamian religion (circa 3500 BC). Mesopotamian religion is thought to have been an influence on subsequent religions throughout the world, including the ancient Greeks. The male counterpart is the incubus.
Succubi appear in dreams and take the form of a woman in order to seduce men and collect their sperm so that they may propagate their own species of demons. Religious traditions hold that repeated sexual activity with a succubus may result in the deterioration of health or mental state, or even in death.
In modern representations, a succubus may or may not appear in dreams and is often depicted as a highly attractive enchantress, whereas, in the past, succubi were generally depicted as frightening and demonic.
