Two snakes weave together to create complex Celtic knots in this ouroboros-inspired design. The snakes create four knots of varying shape and complexity with a void at the center which serves as a focal point.
One snake bites its own tail, true to the original ouroboros design, while the other snake bites onto the first snake's body at the approximate midpoint.
The result is a design of intriguing complexity created by deviating from the simplicity of perfect symmetry - a design that tantalizes the eyes.
A pattern of small dots covers the serpents' bodies and the rim of the pendant, adding to its very ornamented look.
The ouroboros is an ancient symbol that represents the cycle of life, self-sufficiency and rebirth.
