It is no overstatement to say that the snake is very likely the most symbolic animal that exists.  They are said to have supernatural abilities, such as protection against illness, disaster, bad fortune and like the dragon can bring rain, they can also know the consequences that may come from improper actions and will leave a place if things are “not quite right”.  Snakes sometimes are depicted to have the ability to transform themselves into human forms, such as jealous or wronged women.  Not all Snake myths are bad, many shop owners have the image, of a snake, coiled around a mallet hanging near the entrance, this is to bring good fortune and prosperity and sometimes, in story,  it is wittingly said that “the general is happy with us here, (referring to the snake as the “general”).

Throughout time they have become symbols of some of humanity’s greatest hopes and fears.  In ancient Asian folklore, snakes sometimes rewarded humans with gifts of pearls, in general, snakes often appeared as guardians of shrines and treasure and their saliva was thought to create precious the jewels underground.   The snake is linked with wisdom and prophecy. Snakes found in a home are even welcomed as good luck and the embodiment of the spirits of the ancestors as protectors, thus they are called protection snakes.
