These Peruvian Hand Carved Snakes are truly a work of art. Crafted by the Peruvian people in Cusco out of white alabaster, these snakes are potent reminders of transformation and your ability to renew. The snake is an important symbol of Andean culture and is seen in the Andean cross, a three-stepped cross that symbolizes the three stages of Incan life. And when shaped from alabaster as these pieces are, you have a talisman that will usher you into a deeper sense of self and serve as a magnet, drawing people and experiences to you to support your journey of unfoldment.

Transformation is our symbol for May Soul Shift, and these pieces will support you through your own process of evolution. If you’re not already a part of Soul Shift, learn more and sign up here.

The deeper magic of these Peruvian Hand Carved Snakes

Alabaster works to alleviate the tension that arises when you’re looking for and expecting answers. It’s also a stone that will help deepen your meditation and open your heart to forgiveness. White alabaster is a supportive stone that either draws things to you or away from you, depending on your needs. It balances and calms, lessening the feelings of anger and other low-vibration feelings. Additionally, it helps with mental clarity.

In Incan tradition and culture, the snake, puma, and condor represent the three stages of life with the snake representing the lower or underworld. In Incan mythology, the snake also represents wisdom and knowledge. Snakes represent transformation. Before shedding their skin, they temporarily can’t see (their eyes cloud over) giving them a trance-like appearance. This represents the ability to move between the living and the dead. Once their skin starts shedding, their eyes clear. This teaches us that clarity and new perspectives come through releasing the old and willingly submitting to the temporary period of not knowing or seeing what will come next. Snakes have no eyelids, so they can’t blink. They teach us to look more closely and unflinchingly into the heart and soul.

Additionally, working with the snake spirit animal helps you develop your psychic abilities. It assists with awareness, alerting you of trouble or impending danger that you might not be aware of. When working with Snake Medicine, be ready for changes to come. They might not happen the way you think you want them to, but always in the way you need, leading you to a greater and more enlightened version of you.

Hold one of these Peruvian Hand Carved Snakes during meditation for a deepened experience of inner journeying. Place one on your altar, nightstand, or desk to welcome in greater clarity of vision. However you work with these pieces, may they serve you well. And so it is.

This listing is for one (1) Peruvian Hand Carved Snake (about 2-2.5”). Yours will arrive lovingly parceled along with a single leaf of white sage and a card describing the properties of the stone.

    The carving is beautiful. You almost expect the snake to bite.
