Industrial designer Marco Villa Mateos has designed Ouroboros for Galería Zafra in Mexico City. Symbolizing self-reflexivity or cyclicality, the word Ouroboros suggests a sense of something constantly re-creating itself, the eternal return or the phoenix which obtains a new life by rising out of the ashes of its predecessor. Ouroboros as a concept, in a broader sense, symbolizes time and the continuity of life – all captured in a still life.
