SASA Serpent Mug
The serpent is one of the oldest and most widespread mythological symbols; this design takes inspiration from Mesoamerican snake motifs which played an important role in the religious iconography of many Mesoamerican cultures. In Aztec religion, the snake, coatl, was associated with gods including Quetzalcoatl (the Feathered Serpent), and Mixcoatl (the Cloud Serpent). In Mayan mythology, serpents symbolically acted as vehicles for celestial bodies to cross the heavens: the shedding of the skin represented rebirth and renewal while the ability of some species to move between water and earth made them ideal for a symbolic role as negotiators of cosmic space.
Elsewhere, in ancient Mesopotamia, Nirah, the messenger god of Ištaran, was represented as a serpent and the Sumerians used the symbol of the snake for Ningishzida, the Mesopotamian deity of vegetation and the underworld. In Ancient Greek mythology, the serpent-dragon Python was Apollo’s chthonic enemy; Apollo destroyed Python and made her former home the most famous oracle in Greece - Pytho, more famously known as Delphi.
