Snakes are solitary, sensitive and camouflaging hunters who consume pests that damage crops. As both predator and prey, these important reptiles provide a necessary balance to a healthy environment. Snakes react to vibrations and temperature changes around them. Wild reptile mothers protect and warm their snakelets weeks after hatching.

Regularly shedding old skin, snakes symbolize the need to discard negative ways to transform ourselves for the better. They teach us to be aware of our surroundings while being good observers of ourselves and others. Snakes have a lightning association in Zuni Pueblo tradition. Celebrate a snake's wonderful contributions to planet Earth with Michael Coble's gorgeous serpentine carving. It's approximately 2 3/4" long, 2 1/2" wide and 3/4" tall. Eyes are from turquoise inlays and exquisite details abound such as cross-hatching on the snake and fluid lines accenting the rock.
