This painting is filled with symbology. First, the snake is often viewed as a symbol of rebirth because of the way they shed their skin when they outgrow it. Secondly, this snake eating its tail is known as Ouroboros- known to represent cycles in life. Third- this snake is coiled into a triangle/trinity- which in this painting I believe represents mind/body/spirit. So with all these elements combined this painting communicates the importance of balance in life’s constant cycles and of renewing mind/body/spirit to ensure a healthy well being.
