The serpent is just one element that makes up the Italian folklore charm known as the Cimaruta. The snake swallows their own tail creating an infinite shape of "renewal" known as the ouroboros. There is no end and no beginning much like the life cycle of all things with death and rebirth.
Snakes measure approx. 1/2 inch.
