The serpent is known as a symbol of seduction, wisdom and fertility.
The tempter of the Garden of Eden, this enigmatic and mysterious creature has inspired many artists with its sinuous shape and changing reflections of scaly skin. Better than anyone else, René Lalique used the power of snake seduction in his daring creations. In 1924, Rene Lalique created a vase in the shape of a snake, resembling a coiled snake. The vase has been reprinted in deep red crystal. A mixture of pigments and gold was used to achieve this rich, captivating shade.
