The Ouroboros symbolizes the eternal return. While first emerging in Ancient Egypt and India, the Ouroboros has been important throughout religious and mythological symbolism. It has also been used in alchemical illustrations, where it symbolizes the circular nature of the alchemist's opus.
Carl Jung interpreted the Ouroboros as having an archetypal significance to the human psyche. The Jungian psychologist Erich Neumann writes of it as a representation of the pre-ego "dawn state", depicting the undifferentiated infancy experience of both mankind and the individual child.
