Why is there something rather than nothing remains a central question in philosophy? Essentially it is a question pertaining to metaphysics, the first principals of things that include being, knowing and identity. The concept of, The Serpent’s Egg is based on a Greek myth, The Orphic Egg, where the cosmic egg, embraced by a serpent was the source of the universe, a metaphysical consideration. The serpent, the red snake, is an image I have explored within my work for many years. It is an image that has been historically mythologized and symbolically represented with a doctrine of opposing principles. My interest in this symbolic image of the Orphic Egg and the Serpent as a creative life force is primarily associated historically aligning it with transformation, rebirth, fertility, wisdom, healing, the renewal of life as well as the Axis Mundi, the umbilical between the physical and the mystical.
