The imagery of a serpent or dragon consuming its own tail is an old one. A symbol of the cyclical nature of things – and linked to the end of the world and immortality – it’s woven its way through time and across cultures for over a millennium.
Perhaps most famously, In Norse mythology, another example of the Ouroboros is Jörmungandr. Also known as the Midgard (world) serpent, Jörmungandr is a giant sea serpent and the child of the giantess Angrboða and Loki – the trickster of the Norse Gods.
In accordance with the Prose Edda, Odin threw Jörmungandr into the great ocean that encircles the world. He grew so large that he surround Earth, grasping his own tail. It was said that if the World Serpent were to release its tail, Ragnarök (the end of the world) would start.
