the Nezgeth temple snake (above)

Replica of Ouroboros at Steppinthrax (hires)

The Ouroboros is a great serpent said to encircle the world.

An interesting facet of the original Nezgeth religion is that a temple snake in the Eastlands was too well fed. Its pride grew, and in declaring itself the greatest of snakes, it was forced to swallow its own tail in mimicry of the true master of serpents, the Ouroboros.

A model (not to scale) of the gigantic Ouroboros was on display at the Steppinthrax Monastery Museum, although in 949, the sign of the Oracle of Bargth model was accidentally misplaced upon the Ouroboros exhibit.
