Posted by Flame store on
Historically, the snake symbol has been around since the Paleolithic era and is one of the oldest and global mythological signs used in magico-religious rituals and stories.
It has been used as a symbol of the primeval life force as well as a sexual fertility symbol. As snakes shed their skin, they are also symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing. The snake can also represent the duality of good and evil.
What is the difference between a serpent and a snake?
The Serpent is a Latin derived word and another word for snake.
OUROBOROS is an ancient Greek word that translates into οὐροβόρος, and means (oura), "tail" + (bora), "food". It is an ancient snake symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail. The ouroboros is known as a symbol for eternity and the cycle of life, death, and rebirth.
The oldest-known ouroboros symbol was found in the tomb of Tutankhamen. Embedded in ancient Egyptian iconography, it was adopted by Western civilization and was used in the Greek magical tradition and also as a symbol in Alchemy, Gnosticism and Hermeticism.
