This unique Ouroboros wall plaque has been hand carved from wood, painted and adorned with a golden glitter dust. It features the ancient and iconic symbolic snake encircling an interwoven pentagram. The Ouroboros has several meanings interwoven into it. Foremost is the symbolism of the serpent biting, devouring, or eating its own tail. This symbolizes the cyclic nature of the universe, the creation out of destruction. The ouroboros eats its own tail to sustain its life, in an eternal cycle of renewal. Please allow for slight variations, as each of these Ouroboros Wall Plaques are carved and painted by hand. A German import.
