The Other World store was renewed with more amazing items for superstars exclusively. This time, we got an ancient symbol called Eternal Serpent which is more commonly named Ouroboros. It represents a snake (it can also be used a dragon) swallowing its own tail, forming a circle. It symbolizes self-reflexivity or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself - the eternal return - and other things perceived as cycles that begin anew as soon as they end (just like Phoenixes). It also represents the cyclic Nature of the Universe: creation out of destruction, life out of death. I found its symbolism highly interesting so I hope that Stardoll keeps releasing more meaningful items.
This is the virtual version (14 stardollars, by the way):
Stardoll got inspired by a real life ring from Sterling Silver jewerly:
And some nice related art:
Did anyone buy the Eternal Serpent?
