Inspired by the Harry Potter series, our design is similar to the "Dark Mark" of “He Who Must Not Be Named.” In our "Muggle" world the symbolic meaning of the skull and snake deals with the human need to see beyond death and then surrender to life. The Skull is a representation of the impermanence of life, transition, and freedom from worldly burdens. The skull represents the faint shadows that our physical being leaves behind upon our passing.
The Snake is a symbol of power, resurrection, rebirth, renewal and transition—the shedding of the serpent's skin symbolizes man's ability to change and overcome adversity. The purpose of the snake and skull symbolism is to bring understanding to this impermanence. Wear this piece as a reminder that everything in life is temporary.
