Ouroboros in Greek (Ουροβόρος) means tail-eater literally. And your take on it has made me wanna eat all my lame attempts in wood carving! So, I think that another Greek word, kudos (κύδος/praise), is what this piece of art deserves!

This is absolutely splendid. With such a graphical quality to it that I took the liberty to use it as a reference for a drawing: fav.me/d7o5qax.
Tell me if you had rather I didn't: I'll remove my deviation.
