    Mine is a picture of the Ouroboros.

    The ouroboros has several meanings interwoven into it. Foremost is the symbolism of the serpent biting, devouring, eating its own tail. This symbolises the cyclic Nature of the Universe: creation out of destruction, Life out of Death. The ouroboros eats its own tail to sustain its life, in an eternal cycle of renewal.

    Alchemically, the ouroboros is also used as a purifying glyph. Ouroboros was and is the name for the Great World Serpent, encircling the Earth.

    The word Ouroboros is really a term that describes a similar symbol which has been cross-pollinated from many different cultures. Its symbolic connotation from this owes to the returning cyclical nature of the seasons; the oscillations of the night sky; self-fecundation; disintegration and re-integration; truth and cognition complete; the Androgyne; the primaeval waters; the potential before the spark of creation; the undifferentiated; the Totality; primordial unity; self-sufficiency, and the idea of the beginning and the end as being a continuous unending principle.

    Ouroboros represents the conflict of life as well in that life comes out of life and death. 'My end is my beginning.' In a sense life feeds off itself, thus there are good and bad connotations which can be drawn. It is a single image with the entire actions of a life cycle - it begets, weds, impregnates, and slays itself, but in a cyclical sense, rather than linear.

    Thus, it fashions our lives to a totality more towards what it may really be - a series of movements which repeat. "As Above, So Below" - we are born from nature, and we mirror it, because it is what man wholly is a part of. It is this symbolic rendition of the eternal principles that are presented in the Emerald Tablets of Thoth.

    In a double ourobos the bottom dragon represents our material nature, while the top dragon (with wings) represents our spiritual, pure selves. Through the Great Work we can purify ourselves, give up the crass demands of flesh and bone, become unified with The One that permeates the Universe. Thus the two dragons would become One, and the Great Work would be complete.

    I desperately need to redo this avy, the color scheme is completely messed up...

    Anyway, I don't really think neither banner nor avy has special meaning. The true gamers would recognise a generel Warcraft theme, dedicated to either the Burning Legion or the Devouring Plague cq. Undead Scourge. Buuuut... they seem to be having the same origin and quite a common cause, it's probably dedicated to Destruction...

    My Av is the Great Old One Cthulhu in his vacation attire. There's really no meaning to it he's just one of my favorite litereary characters ever and I love the plushies of him

    and if the avatar below him can look upon him and keep it's life or sanity in tact sure he'd probably date them

    I found my avatar at a now forgotten site somewhere on the net... I just think she's so lively and 'me' that I use her most of the places on the Internet.

    As for dating, I don't know (and is it below or above?) If above then no, I'm pretty sure that my avatar is straight *G*

    My avatar is the malinged Cheshire Cat from American McGee's "Alice". I'm obsessed with Lewis Carroll's "WonderLand" and AMG's "Alice" is one of my favorite PC games!

    As to dating....I guess that would all depend on what type of cat would want one skeletal and gory - lol

    My avatar is (obviously) Gil -Galad, high king of the Noldor from LOTR, he appears like 3 secs in the movie though, but in the book (silmarillion) is one of my favourite characters.

    As it it for dating..He's kinda like me, hasn't found whom to love yet. (as well as me he's immutably straight)
    Ents? I really don't think so.


    Btw Aran Noldorin means king of the Noldor in Sindarin.
