hmm...just to make it clear, the snake is not fake nor dead nor opening its mouth to swallow the poor kid. the title probably explains most of the tone. the mythical deity took interest in a young orphaned child and began to protect the boy. well, he hadn't expected his glorious presence to fall so much down to earth when he made that decision. now he serves as the kid's bed/pillow, cushion, playmate, babysitter, and vehicle. in this picture he ends up once again as a bed for the child, yawning. Pretty much all of its previous majestic aura is gone. now, sorry to say, he just looks dumb.
