So for those of you who are scientifically inclined, you probably already know that snake phobia is built right into human beings' DNA. Studies have shown that if you show an infant a snake, they will instinctively recoil. Like most people, I didn't have a big issue with snakes as a kid, seeing snakes on TV or in books, visiting the snake house at the San Diego Zoo, was just part of the routine of life. As an adult my fear of snakes grew, and there's a couple of times I'd seen snakes in action on television that totally freaked me out. I am now at the stage where seeing snakes in pictures or on TV makes me feel physically sick. I can't think of anything else that creates in me that feeling of utter fear and revulsion except snakes. They have to be real snakes, though even in art or depictions such as this ring, I have to first think sssssnake, yeeeesh, before getting over it, lol. Anyway, as for this ring, I picked it and another ring of an owl made of the same materials because they were unique and interesting. For obvious reasons, I am not overly fond of this snake ring, but have to admire the design and it does look nice on my finger, which is doubly ironic since most rings don't flatter me. What a world we live in, hey? I hope you like seeing this ring, and thanks for looking.
