The Ouroboros is a circular symbol of a snake or dragon devouring its tail symbolizes infinity or wholeness, self-reflexivity or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself, the eternal return, standing for as an emblem of wholeness or infinity.
The eating of its own tail declares the statement “The end is the beginning” and reminds us of the eternal nature of energy which cannot be destroyed, only transformed.
The symbolic meaning of the Ouroboros is replete with concepts such as:
The Ouroboros makes its appearance in several cultural myths.
