By: Tamara Ortiz
The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol usually depicted as a serpent or dragon. The symbol originated in Egypt as a representation for the sun although the name originates from within the Greek language “oura” meaning “tail” and “boros” meaning “eating”. Sometimes you will find the Ouroboros symbol represented at a lemniscate (figure eight).The Ouroboros can also have the symbolic representation of coming of full circle, the renewal of life and infinity and represents the cycle of life, rebirth and death. The Ouroboros can be found in many cultures such as the Aztec serpent God Quetzalcoatl and the Chinese alchemical dragons have both similar shapes and meanings. This is because of the serpent’s representation of rebirth by shedding its skin and starting a new. The Ouroboros can be represented very simple or a very intricate design.
