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. My entry in the Year of the Snake Contest: received 124 votes (thank you to all who voted!) and came 58 out of 130 entries. So pleased to be in the Top 100!

su_g says: 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!).

rhondadesigns says: 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..

fireflower says: 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!

anniedeb says: 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.
