The Snake and its Interpretations

The human mind operates on associations.  God's creature the snake has gotten a bad rap, because in the bible it symbolizes Satan.  The snake eating its tail is a symbol of life.  In Jungian philosophy it symbolizes the human psyche.  Ouroboros, is an ancient symbol.  Fear not, the snake is not evil.

Above, Apollo is hatching!

Me and my pet Apollo, and friends.

I once knew an African nun, she toured my home and was struck by the presence of evil in my art.  That was due to her lack of understanding of other cultures.  Xenophobia, I believe it is called.  In my effort to love all humanity and understand different cultures I frightened her.  Moses was into snakes and staffs.  The snake is a symbol of medicine, the Caduceus.

I had a pet python snake in 2004, the year I visited Italy, twice.  I gave it back to the store owner as I did not like the mites that were pestering him and I did not want to deal with chemicals.
