A snake molts countless times in its lifetime. As a result, Japanese people have viewed it as a symbol of rebirth. This work uses this imagery to interpret the concept of a rebirth. Narrow, oval, and rough layers of its outer skin slough off to reveal a core that is inherently smooth. The outer skin and the core serve as a contrast between old and new and highlight the dual nature of life and death. Regardless of soul or body, new, old, life, and death are like an endless loop that is constantly turning. Each beginning indicates an end sometime in the future, and each death will bring new life. This is the endless principle behind all things. And, it is here that the artist provides a contemplative view of life for viewers to ponder.
