I’ve started a subcategory of my Signs and Sayings gallery entitled “Be Ye Wise as Serpents” which is a phrase attributed to Jesus (Matt. 10:16) in the King James version of the Christian Bible. I agree wholeheartedly that observing the true nature of snakes reveals much we can learn from them. First, I must admit that this is not an original idea. I was inspired by a T-shirt someone gave me, and then transposed these snake witticisms in my own words on my own art - featuring the awesome serpents of the desert southwest (with the exception of the anaconda from Out of Africa). What better snake represents them than the iconic Western Diamondback Rattlesnake (Crotalus atrox). Here is that most common of serpents all coiled after another rescue and release. He’s being ever vigilant as we should all be in the turbulent times we’re currently living in!
