The ouroboros or uroboros is an historic image depicting a serpent or dragon ingesting its very own tail. Originating in historical egyptian iconography, the ouroboros entered western tradition through greek magical subculture and became adopted as a image in gnosticism and hermeticism and most extensively in alchemy. The term derives from historic greek eating'. The ouroboros is often interpreted as a symbol for eternal cyclic renewal or a cycle of existence, dying, and rebirth. The pores and skin-sloughing technique of snakes symbolizes the transmigration of souls, the snake biting its own tail is a fertility image. The tail of the snake is a phallic image, the mouth is a yonic or womb-like image. The primary regarded appearance of the ouroboros motif is inside the enigmatic book of the netherworld, an ancient egyptian funerary text in kv62, the tomb of tutankhamun, inside the 14th century bc.
The textual content worries the actions of the god ra and his union with osiris in the underworld. The ouroboros is depicted twice at the discern: maintaining their tails of their mouths, one encircling the head and top chest, the alternative surrounding the toes of a large parent, which can also represent the unified ra-osiris (osiris born once more as ra). Each serpents are manifestations of the deity mehen, who in other funerary texts protects ra in his underworld adventure. The whole divine discern represents the beginning and the give up of time.
