Beyond the well-known house of snakes in the zoo, Serpentarium is also the 13th sign of the zodiac according to the new astrology. It is related to the constellation of Ophiuchus showing a man holding a snake, connected directly to the legend of Laocoon, a priest of Poseidon at Troy, which was strangled by snakes. The famous sculptural group of Laocoon is our most direct influence, expressing death and agony of the character. Consequently completed with CantoXXIV of Dante’s Inferno where countless vipers attack penitents in the circle of thieves.
Lucifer is also represented surrounded by snakes, those we decide to humanize denouncing the cynical and misleading nature of man.
