Warning! This art statement may offend religious sentiments. I truly do not wish to hurt the feelings of my fellow religious tellurians, thus please understand that this space is one that is critical of the abrahamic religions and should you wish to skip it I would understand completely.. :)

Snakes are common throughout history in creation myths and as a symbol of reincarnation or rebirth,... One can't forget its significance in Genesis, a cautionary tale, taught to young uns, less they get it into their heads to ever question the belief system that has been fed to them their whole lives, and which also fits so neatly into the historical patriarchal narrative of woman being the downfall of man with their "evil" ways.

I find it ironic how the symbol of reincarnation and rebirth is placed in this narrative. As rather than a sad story of a lowly 'creation' being cast away for not being the unquestioning sheep they are 'commanded' to be, I see the potential of a wonderful tale of rebirth and enlightenment of one who has been shackled by delusion and fairy tales that have ridiculously dictated the very fundamentals of the way ze has interacted with everything around hir, hir whole life. With the bite of knowledge, rather than living under a shadow fearing the unknown, the whole foundational concept of ones being has changed to that which encourages one to seek to understand and explore...
