The Double-headed serpent is the Aztec ancient symbol of the Ouroboros. In ancient times it was made as a statue, composed of mostly turquoise pieces applied to a wood base. It came from Aztec Mexico and might have been worn or displayed in religious ceremonies. It is possible that this sculpture may be one of the gifts given by the Aztec emperor, Moctezuma II, to Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés when he invaded in 1519.
This symbol was so sacred and significant that an overwhelming amount of labor was put into making these statues covered in turquoise. The Aztecs didn’t use iron tools and had to cut the turquoise stones with harder stones, then, the stones have been broken into similar sized pieces and then stuck to the wooden body with pine resin. Using 2,000 small flat pieces stone that gives the impression of a smooth curved mosaic surface. It has to be remembered that Some of the turquoises had been brought 1,600 km to become part of this serpent!!!
The Ouroboros is the ultimate symbol of renewal, creativity, and endless change.
The Ouroboros symbol has accompanied me for many years and represents for me the courage to accept life-changing decisions.
The Ouroboros often represents self-reflexivity or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself, the eternal return, and other processes perceived as cycles that begin anew as soon as they end. It can also represent the idea of unity. The Ouroboros has been important in religious and mythological symbolism but has also been frequently used in alchemical illustrations, where it symbolizes the circular nature of the alchemist’s opus.
The Ouroboros symbolizes on a personal level the ability to create ourselves a new and to inspire us to make long-lasting changes in our lives. On the cosmic level, it is the symbol of the universe itself that creates itself a new from itself, or as Stephen Hawking says – The force of gravity that allows, in fact, the universe to create itself a new infinitely.
