Caduceus by BlackUniGryphon Caduceus by BlackUniGryphon
This is a Caduceus which is a Greek version symbol that was somewhat ripped off of the Sumerians (Mesopotamia)  which means a "harold" or a "message" or "good news", usually some form of "divine message" often from the Messenger god Mercury/Hermes. This symbol has double snakes but usually the wings are ABOVE the heads of the snakes. I broke that.

Americans usually confuse this another symbol, and many people have attached this with Orientalism/Eastern ideas, which altho' are very creative, and I like very much, are not actually true at all. I won't be wring what those things are because I don;t wan them to show up in the search results n propagate falsities.

I was sketching this because I had a number of animation ideas I wanted to try in After Effects, but I don't think I can do that now.

The reason it only has 1 wing is because IO was planning to do them both digitally to have symmetry.
