The snake motif is prominent in many mythologies worldwide—from the ancient Chinese snake-headed woman, Nüwa, who created humans, to the evil Nordic snake God, Nidhogg, who gnawed away at the roots of the sacred tree of life. This sculpture is intended to create a mythological wonderland that can be explored and that emulates the intimate and all-encompassing presence of life and death in our lives.

In collaboration with Emilia Mann
