Event Details

Epitomising seduction, rebirth and transformation, the snake as a symbol has been intertwined for centuries with the story of mankind, capturing the imagination from East to West. Ever since antiquity, the creature’s ability to renew itself by changing skin, to remain in contact with the earth and at the same time rise above it, to sinuously coil itself up, or to defeat threatening predators, has fed myths and legends inspiring artists in many fields. Endowed with wisdom and magical qualities, snakes were viewed as guardians, emissaries and often as gods in their own right, as well as feared and respected for their potential to be dangerous and destructive.

As one of the most extraordinary versatile motif, the serpent has slithered into many artistic periods and practices as a prominent source of inspiration, even taking the mantel of muse for the Bulgari Serpenti Collection.
