the "snake goddess"
In the collection, there are woven necklaces and earrings featuring snakes in different shapes and positions. Some swirl up in circles like a snail; others twist and turn their bodies to show movement as if they are swimming across a river. This design is inspired by Nuwa, the "Snake Goddess" in ancient Chinese mythology best known for creating mankind and repairing the wall of heaven. Ranging from 475BC to 1279AD, various sources had accounts about Nuwa in her half human half serpent body. She was credited to the creation of mankind and the upkeep of the Wall of Heaven, among her multiple roles. Paintings depicted her as part of the male and female joint body of half people and half snake or dragon. Some ethnic groups in South Western China regard Nuwa as their goddess. Customs and festivals have been originated from and inspired by Nuwa's legend, and among them, the "Water-Splashing Festival". The present custom of women covering their faces with fans is recognition of her sacrifices as a creator and a devotor. Nuwa is the traditional divine goddess of the Miao people, and is historically respected and admired for her heroic act in fighting disasters.
