Ouroboros, the ancient Greek and Egyptian symbol of rebirth, life, and death. The serpent is devouring itself and then being reborn from itself at the same time. It is described by the philosopher Plato as being a “cosmic primordial creature in a state of self devouring”.
It is the representation of how nothing is ever gone, merely changed from one form to another. That the ending of one thing can be the beginning of another in a long cycle of death and rebirth that follows us throughout our lives.
We used the Ouroboros as the inspiration for this piece. We painstakingly carved out the many scales and have made a product that is highly dynamic and unique without lacking the interlocking non ending sense of the curves from the original symbol. Redefining the shape of the Ouroboros using a double-crossed structure of Möbius bands and rings, which is more complex than the original one. We’ve brought you a truly remarkable item that is the perfect conversation piece for those who like their accessories to have a story or meaning behind them.Material : Brass
