The name 'Ouroboros' comes from Greek; it means tail-eater. It is a symbol of alchemy, and one of the oldest mythical symbols in the world. It occurs in the Aztec mythology, Chinese mythology and many others. It is an image of a snake or dragon biting its own tail (eats), and thus forms an eternal circle. It symbolizes the cyclical nature of nature, the eternal return and the unity of all. This is musical-technically expressed by a "perpetual counterpoint" between the voices.
