The snake is an intensely mystical animal, and its image is charged with occult power. The ancient Greeks believed she knew the secrets of healing and immortality. This is why the snake is curled around the staff of Asclepius, god of Medicine. The snake can symbolizes the divine umbilical chord connecting us to Mother Earth. The Ourboros serpent, swallowing its own tail, holds the universe together. A cosmic serpent holds the Orphic Egg in her coils. Snakes embody an earthbound sensuality and otherworldly grace, creatures representing both darkness and enlightenment, poison and regeneration, forbidden wisdom, and divine protection.
This bold, weighty talisman is large enough to fill one's palm, but rests elegantly against the body. It's every surface is rendered with painstaking detail, making it a pleasure to touch and hold. It works well on any of our chains, though I would favor the heavier link, curb, or snake chains.
