Snakes are unique individuals and react accordingly. Just because they're coiled up doesn't mean a strike is coming, although this body position gives them greater distance in doing so. Sometimes Snakes
twist up because it's a safer position. Brian Yatsattie's exceptional reptile has been carved from Atlantasite, which is a natural combination of a yellow-green serpentine with areas of purple stichtite. Loaded with great color, this stone is said to remove stagnate energies. Tiny eyes are from jet and an excellent rattler is tucked underneath this carving that measures about 1 1/2" tall, 1 1/2" wide and 1 3/4" deep.
