This original design, created by Sunshine Joy in the USA, is a stylized Celtic representation of two Snakes or Dragons circling in an endless Dance of Life.
The dual interlinking of these two animals represents love, relationship, duality, and interaction in Celtic mythology.
Two snakes represent the eternal circling of power between the male and female elements of life, and the way those elements can come together to create new beings and ways of being.
This is a beautiful Celtic Snake design that will appeal to many pagans as an altar cloth for a large table.
It includes triquetras, triskelions, and yin yangs, and borders representing celtic knots, symbolizing life energy in synchronized motion.
Dragons and Serpents represent Knowledge to the Celtic people, and it is said that the ancient Druid priests were the 'snakes' that St. Patrick drove out of Ireland.
Snakes have long been a traditional totem for sexuality and virility, representing potent life force, as seen in the Voudon god, Djamballah.
They're also associated with rebirth and renewal, possibly because of the snake's ability to shed its old skin and keep on living.
The Celtic god, Cernunnos, is often seen holding a snake in each hand, and snakes represent kundalini energy in Vedic spirituality - communication of the divine energy in form.
The snake has been maligned in christian mysticism for leading Eve astray in the Garden of Eden - but in truth the snake was and remains a teacher of wisdom, and wisdom always has a bite in it, since the more you are aware of, the more you can suffer...
