Coptiv text on Adam

I love this Strange St. Michael coptic drawing. It seems to a great place to share Hugh Nibly's insights  "in the coptic text Hypostasis of the Archons, the "spiritual woman" comes to the sleeping Adam and says, "Arise, Adam! and when he sees her he says: "It is thou who hast given me life! Thou shalt be called the mother of the Living!' She is indead my mother, even the physician" --That is, she both gives life and restores it."
 Pg253 MJSP
