The snake is a member of "The 5 Poisonous Animals", which includes the scorpion, centipede, spider and toad. The Chinese believe that the wearing of a snake counteracts poison or bad luck by combating poison with poison. As a snake sheds its skin, the snake also symbolises transformation. The snake is worn as a lucky charm.
In this beautiful hand carving, the snake is hand carved into a piece of Gobi jade stone.
Brown cord intricately laced with medium sized black beads.
Cord length approx. 27cm.
Limited edition. Only one available.
