OphiUchus by cubecrazy2 OphiUchus by cubecrazy2
This piece represents Ophiuchus in the form of a daemon, not just one but two daemons, one of water and the other as the inner fire within.  Ophi and Uchus get their elements by the neighboring zodiacs Scorpio (water) and Sagittarius (fire).
***
Ophiuchus is the hidden/13th zodiac that is 19 days in duration.  Ophiuchus stands for the Serpent Bearer and it is from this zodiac that snakes are used in medical iconography today.  Both Asclepius (Greek) and Imhotep (Egypt) are based on this Zodiac and both characters are part of legends about administering medical care and "raising" the dead. 

Ophiuchus runs from Nov 30 - Dec 17, and I'm totally bummed that my birthday doesn't lie between those dates.
