DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

The snake is an animal revered by many cultures. Its ability to renew itself by changing its skin made it often become a symbol of rebirth and fertility.

Shamans of American tribes respected it, and believed it to communicate to the gods, and to have healing powers.

In some occasions, a rattlesnake tail was used to symbolize the death and rebirth of the person for whom a rhyte was held.

The wolf, owl and bear too are sacred animals, symbolizing resistance, magic and strength.

Requested by Matt to go spiraling around his arm.

We prepared a colour version and the related version in shades of grey.
