ATRETIUM SCHISTOSUM by artist Ghilly DeYoung
Acrylic and collage on canvas, 12” x 12”
These beautiful snakes rely on rivers and their ecosystems to survive.
An Atretium Schistosum, or a Keelback watersnake, represents adaptability, transformation, and rebirth. It invites us to spend time on deep healing and authentic creativity.
Snakes are often associated with the Magical Arts, as well as the medical field, which traces back to Ancient Greece.
