The Ouroboros symbolises the cyclic Nature of the Universe: creation out of destruction, Life out of Death. The ouroboros eats its own tail to sustain its life, in an eternal cycle of renewal. It is an ancient symbol used in many cultures: from Egypt, the Aztecs, Native american Indians and Japanese myths. The image is sometimes seen as a dragonor snake biting/eating its own tail. References to the Ouroboros have been used in the TV series the X-Files (Scully chooses to get a tattoo of one on her back) and recently the movie Adaptation. The sybol can be taken positively (renewal)or negatively (destruction)...
