This is beautiful! Please provide instructions on how I can purchase one. I've been looking for something similar but with the Emerald Tablet text in the center. This is the closest thing I've found to the image of that in my mind, but if you accept custom work requests I'd love to see what you come up with.

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.
