I didn't do ranger; as in he's not made of clay, and i didn't create him. However, this snake is made in about 3 minutes and it's one of those 'flash' moments where idea and context fit in just so nicely. The whole setting in the birdcage and all is an installation piece which is personal to me. It also has spiritual significance - The Devil has been defeated!!!
The snake is the flesh and the old man. The old man fights against the Spirit...But like i said, the Devil has been defeated! And no one who comes against the mark of the Cross will prosper!
