“Her hands are stained with flesh and blood.” (TCL 6 49 r.13-29)
This incantation includes a common magical element: a deity showing how to solve a problem, so the petitioner can follow their example. In this case, the demoness Lamashtu is diverted from her bloodlust by equipping her to be an ordinary woman rather than a monster.
She is furious, she is fierce, she is divine, she is dazzling — and she is a she-wolf, the daughter of Anu! Her feet are talons ; her hands are unclean; her face looks like the face of a savage lion. She rose up from a reed-thicket, her hair hanging loose, her panties cut away. She travels the tracks of cattle; she follows the tracks of sheep. Her hands are stained with flesh and blood. She enters through the window; she slithers in like a snake. She moves in and out of houses.
In love with my new phone case and pen :D Clearly can’t get enough of the summer Pokemon line at Its Demo. The case is soft pink velvet inside, with card holders so I don’t have to carry my big purse around all the time. And the best part about the pen–each ear goes down individually to give you red or black ink!!
