Immortality and Rebirth



The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent eating it's own tail, it represents the continuous cycle of life, death and rebirth - the renewal of life and the concept of eternity. Here the Armadillo Lizard rolls up into a ball when frightened, in which it takes its tail in its mouth, allowing itself to be protected by thick scales, becoming the "real" Ouroboros.
