Private, wise and intuitive, the enigmatic Snake has no qualms about outing itself first.
The physical allure of the Snake is explored in its sinuous form. Inspired by the traditional art of Chinese kite-making, this golden snake flies above the public, representing prosperity and wealth. The artists have also featured the Chinese happiness symbols in the snake’s eyes as a symbol of good fortune for the coming year.
