In a graceful wave movement the snake meanders through flowering orchids and green plants. In the Chinese horoscope, the orchid is considered a ‘lucky flower’. The snake fascinates the artist as it enjoys the reputation of being mysterious, unfathomable and very wise. With the connection to nature, the artist wants to express inner peace and relaxation as well as liveliness and freshness at the same time.

People born under the sign of the snake seem puzzling and mysterious. They are difficult to read, do not like to show their feelings and prefer to act in secret. Even if they are emotionally agitated, they still appear calm and cool to the viewer. Snakes are also considered very sensitive, thoughtful and like to pursue philosophical questions. And what you might not have suspected: they actually have a good sense of humour.
