My Mandala (#6)

The 6th circle: 1 red snake, the Ouroboros ; the snake biting or swallowing its own tail is a powerful symbol of infinity, and also of universal nature, of completion, perfection and totality, the endless round of embodied existence.
It also represented unity born out of the joining of opposites. The snake eats itself and feeds itself simultaneously. It kills itself and rejuvenates itself, moving forward only to return to where it began.
De 6e cirkel; de rode slang, de Ouroboros, een symbool van oneindigheid en vernieuwing.
Have a nice weekend!
Prettig weekend!
