Ouroboros (Jormungand) by nik159 Ouroboros (Jormungand) by nik159
2013

90 x 70 cm. Oil/acrylic on canvas.

Спящий на шкурах имен,
Пьющий золотое стекло,
На алтаре - клоны времён,
Пожирающие наше тепло.

Воплощающий высшую силу,
В приколоченной к небу руке,
Не оставь нас, верни и помилуй -
Умираем на любом языке.

ДДТ - "Он"

Thanks for Daily Deviation!

The World Serpent, Jormungand, is from Norse mythology, and the name Ouroboros is from Greek, meaning a serpent eating its own tail, a symbol of eternity. I've always seen the two symbols as being similar but different, as Jormungand doesn't symbolize eternity when to consider Ragnarok.

Other world serpents have existed throughout the world, including the creator spirits known as Rainbow Serpents from Oceanic cultures and Vritra from the Hindu Rig Veda.

It's interesting to see Ouroborus and Jormungand merged in this.

Technically, Ouroboros is supposed to wrap around the earth three times before eating its tail, but they way you represented it... Much better. :heart:
