Man and Religion

Man showing the little snakes in his hands. The duality of things, man and nature. The serpent is a powerful symbol in various religions. In Judaism and Christianity, for example, it is associated with evil, for remembering the phallus and sexual desire. In Judaism, it is linked to human transcendence by the connection with God, above the sin of sexual behavior, related to Adam and Eve.
