A symbol of the dual creative forces (good and evil) within the world of forms. When twined around a staff, the two snakes form the caduceus, a symbol of the messenger of the gods, Hermes. In Greek mythology, the caduceus was found when Hermes used the staff to separate two serpents locked in combat, and thus came to symbolize peace.
