The snake is one of the oldest and most widespread mythological symbols, being present in most cultures with similar meanings. The characteristics of the snake that have stimulated his association with supernatural themes in man are numerous. For example, its poison is associated, like plants and fungi, with the power to heal, poison, or bestow an expanded consciousness (even the elixir of long life or immortality). Its shedding of skin also makes it a symbol of renewal and rebirth that can lead to immortality.

Sometimes the snake and the dragon have similar symbolic functions, as the snake's venom has characteristics similar to those of fire thrown by a dragon. For example, the ancient Greek Ladon and Norse Níðhöggr are sometimes described as snakes and sometimes as dragons. In China, the Indian snake nāga is often confused with the Chinese dragon ( lóng ). The serpent god Quetzalcoatl of the Aztecs and Toltecs also has dragon wings, like its equivalent in Mayan mythology ("feathered serpent").

In Egypt and Greece the snake was associated with time and embodied life and health. Think also of the symbolism of the ouroboros which represents the cyclical nature of time.

In ancient Rome the snake had a completely original meaning linked to archaic aspects of the tradition that later joined the Hellenizing syncretisms. In the Latin language the word draco - d raconis indicated a large crested snake with a beard that was often depicted as a decoration of the domestic lararium , or the place reserved, in the Roman house, for the worship of the Ancestors and Lares. In reality the snake in the Roman tradition had no negative meaning, on the contrary it was considered a benevolent protector of the house and its inhabitants. From an iconographic point of view, the snake-dragon was also often used on the external walls of buildings as a disincentive to commit rude gestures in the surroundings, a warning to respect and not to soil the place (see M. Elisa Garcia Barraco, The snake in the religious tradition romana , Rome, 2019).

n numerous literary works the figure of the snake is present as a tempter. For example, the snake of the Little Prince, or Kaa of the Jungle Book.

In the Harry Potter saga the figure of the snake is present as a symbol of evil, associated mainly with Lord Voldemort and his servants (including the snake Nagini), but also with the protagonist Harry Potter to indicate his "dark side".

In The Neverending Story , Michael Ende's most famous novel, the magical talisman called AURYIN, which accompanies the adventures of the protagonists Atreyu and Bastiano, is made up of two snakes, one light and one dark, which bite their tail to form an ellipse.
