In ancient Egyptian mythology the world was created by four powers, one of which was the sun god Amun-Ra who took the form of a snake and emerged from the water to inseminated the cosmic egg, the kneph, which was created by the other gods. In another story, a god named Hathor transformed himself into a poisonous snake called Agep and killed Seth. He also guarded the wheat fields where the spirit of Horus was said to live, bringing the sheaf of wheat to be regarded as the symbol of rebirth.

In Greek mythology Zeus freed two eagles which met at the centre of the world, sometimes called the navel of the earth, which is guarded by a snake called Pytho. The symbol Serpens Candivorens, a snake biting its tail, represents the unending cycle of nature between destruction, and new creation, life and death. The Greeks called this figure Ouroboros. Chinese mythology maintained that the world was surrounded by two entwined snakes, which symbolized the power and wisdom of the creator. In another legend the Buddha was attacked by a snake which bound itself seven times around his waist. Due to the inner strength of the Buddha, the snake could not kill him but instead became his follower.

 Quoting: Plasmare


Notice all the snakes. A primal fear. A common mask and symbol for the shadow. That about ourselves which we are afraid to confront, symbolized by our inherent reaction.

It seems to me a strong cultural difference in how change, chaos, and rebirth are able to be perceived.

Think of the Abrahamic view of the serpent, offering knowledge of good and evil, a trick in being blind to objectivity, and assuming/being trapped in perspective.

Very interesting post. Cheers.
