Description

The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol used by many cultures throughout history. It is a symbol of the eternal cycles of life, death, rebirth. I saw an alternate meaning to the image as well. One of mindless consumption to the point of self destruction. I go back and forth in my mind between the two meanings.

In addition to the symbolism of the eternal cycles with the circle, and snake consuming itself; I added my own twist of course. The body cross section is triangular, having 2 sides and a belly. I twisted these 120 degrees and joined them creating a 3-D Moebius strip effect. For those unfamiliar with that- take a long strip of flat paper, give it one twist, and tape the ends together to form a loop. If you place your finger on one spot in the center of the loop, move your finger along the center, you will come back to the same point at which you started. The 2 sided piece of paper has become a one sided object.
