The story: the snake is a highly symbolic animal in many cultures, and has been since ancient times. It was then associated with eternal youth but also with renewal, due to the perpetual shedding of the serpent. In India and South Asia, it is associated with abundance and by extension, fertility. In Egypt, it was a royal and divine symbol linked to immortality but also to wisdom. Whatever symbolism you choose to remember, the snake is an aesthetic motif with universal symbolism.
