Snake Sunday

When I was a young girl I had a terror of snakes. After watching a movie about a snake venom farm this evolved into fascination. I had a beautiful silver snake bracelet that I thought brought me luck. Snakes are symbols of power, knowledge, healing and transformation in Christianity and myth. They shed their skins and grow new ones. Their venom is used in medicine. So here are two drawings featuring a snake.

    1. Ooh you are lucky to meet snakes in the wild. I’ve held a pet python and found it surprisingly pleasant. I’ve only once seen a snake outdoors. I think it may have been an adder in the reeds by the riverside.
