ouroboros

this is something that's been on my mind all day; the ouroboros is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent eating its own tail. although snakes generally give me the creeps, i think this image is such a compelling and beautiful representation of the cyclical nature of creation and destruction.

Awesome. The twisting and the scales give it a 3-D feel while being 2-D
