Inspired by the archetypal animal “sanke/serpent” from the ancient Andean shamnism and medicine way, each of the archetypal animals exudes a different flavor of energy. Serpent symbolizes knowledge, sexuality and healing. Perhaps the most universal archetype, serpent has always represented the healing power of nature. The staff of medicine, or Caduceus, is formed by two serpents intertwined around a rod. The serpent teaches us to shed our past the way she sheds her skin so we may walk with beauty on the belly of the Mother.
