Silver bar "Year of the Snake"
The silver bar "Year of the Snake" is made of fine silver 999/1000 and weighs 10 grams. According to the Chinese lunar calendar, the snake is a symbol of grace, intelligence, and charm. On the face of the bar is depicted a snake wrapped around a pillar engraved with the Chinese snake symbol. The rear of the bar depicts the back of the snake, wrapped around the pillar and the silver and weight seals, with the brand of the Swiss refinery PAMP, visible on the back.
The snake is a complex and universal symbol. It means simultaneously death and immortality, good and evil embodied by the forked tongue, the healing, but deadly action of the poison, the mysterious ability to hypnotize humans and animals. Master of mind and heart, guardian of family values, healer of physical pain and bearer of spiritual elevation over simple death.
