Comment:
असीम (Asima) - Unending (adj) - having or seeming to have no end.

Another personal piece, one that's been turning in the back of my mind for a bit.
I needed to do something using a lot of personal elements and symbols after hearing a song that means a lot after so long. For a few years I hadn't listened to it, and it came on during a shuffle playlist and bought a lot back with it. The ouroborous is a symbol I've associated with for a long time, designs based on spirals and circles have always held a special place for me. Coupling that with the serpent (a symbol of renewal and rebirth), the fossa familiar, and Saleeda - well it makes for a strong statement spiritually. While it doesn't make sense to much anyone but myself, I'm glad to be done and sharing it.

    I may not get this on all or even half it's levels, but it's damn pretty.
