In the Year of the Snake. Two snakes sit on a cusp of color: a combination of the old and the new, the past and the future, the bright and the dark against the light of day and dark of night.

Thanks for the feedback Sylvie and Rhonda, much appreciated! Rhonda your analysis is so astute and on the knocker - I'm fascinated by both Oriental & European heraldry and the way they use the essence of things, as icons and symbols, to basically identify-at-a-distance (I suppose logos and brands have the same function in these post-literate times...difficult to express what I mean in words - I think you put your finger on it and pinned it down for me!).

Hi Su, Just dropped by to say that I love this design.. it's so very clever, well thought out. I'm positive You're going to excel in this Contest.. LOL Good luck.. :^D ~ Sylvie
These closely entwined snakes, with their unblinking diamond eyes, make a ssssplendid design, Su! They fit snugly into a niche that combines Oriental symbolism with traditional European heraldic-style motifs..
I very much appreciate your lovely comments Penny and Victoria: thank you for taking the time!
Stunning design, I love the snake eyes and its expression. It looks like they're dancing between each other. Beautiful!!
I love it, love it, love it! Great design and colours Su you got my vote
Thanks for all the great comments on this design - a huge thank you to you all, and so glad that the banner view communicates as it was such a strong picture in my mind's eye!
Very intriguing and graphic design Su, love how this sort of resembles dominoes too! Good luck this week!
Love your bold, clean design Su :) Perfect color choice!
I love the banner view! What a great Chinese New Year's decoration that would be! The pair of these elegantly entwined serpents could also stretch across the cover for a menu at an upscale restaurant ... front cover white with black snake, back cover black with red snake. Good luck in the contest!
Such a wonderful layout with the black and white background and I love the way you did the interlocking snakes!
Well done, Su. This is just beautiful. Kind of has the feel of a medieval family banner. A string of horses with riders galloping along a path with the banners flying. I can see it in my mind's eye. This design is gorgeous.
The contrast is magnificent!
Zen snakes are so cool. Crazy about the black white red combo. Spoonflower is bursting at the seams with great snake fabrics for this contest. A fun way to kick off the new year. Who cares who wins, we are all collectively awesome.
very cool indeed. they look watchful too.
