A stained glass serpent, handpainted in gold and fired to an enamel finish. Inspired by the tales of snakes and serpents in folklore and mythology, it is one of the oldest and most widespread mythological symbols. Snakes have been associated with some of the oldest rituals known to mankind and represent dual expression of good and evil. This serpent was cut from grey and pale brown stained glass and detailed entirely in gold. A forked copper tongue extends from the top.
Two discreet copper loops are attached to the sides of the snake and then connected by a copper chain for hanging.
