 In religion, mythology, and literature, serpents and snakes often stand for fertility or a creative life force.

Many mythical creatures, such as dragons, combine snakelike qualities with features of humans or animals.

Cecrops had a man's head and chest on a snake's body and was a culture hero to the Athenians. In Toltec and Aztec mythology, Quetzalcoatl, the Feathered Serpent, held an important place.
