Originating in ancient Egyptian iconography , the ouroboros entered western tradition via Greek magical tradition and was adopted as a symbol in Gnosticism and Hermeticism and most notably in alchemy. The skin-sloughing process of snakes symbolizes the transmigration of souls , the snake biting its own tail is a fertility symbol. The tail of the snake is a phallic symbol, the mouth is a yonic or womb-like symbol. The first known appearance of the ouroboros motif is in the Enigmatic Book of the Netherworld , an ancient Egyptian funerary text in KV62 , the tomb of Tutankhamun , in the 14th century BC. The text concerns the actions of the god Ra and his union with Osiris in the underworld. The ouroboros is depicted twice on the figure: holding their tails in their mouths, one encircling the head and upper chest, the other surrounding the feet of a large figure, which may represent the unified Ra-Osiris Osiris born again as Ra.
