Originally inspired by the beautiful coils of the Emerald Tree Boa, I created this image as both a surrealistic representation of the intimate connection my heart has to our shared roots in the Amazon, as well as the innately wild ferocity that lays dormant in tranquility, until provoked.

Another heart breaker. . .

Phenomenally symbolic.  Constricting snakes have a keen awareness of the heart's pulse as they tap into when the heart stops. . .  

It's often believed snakes cannot hear. This presumption, fed by the fact snakes lack an outer ear (and that scientific evidence of snakes responding to conventional sound is scarce). Snakes do, however, possess an inner ear w/a functional cochlea…which actually allows them mastery of binaural beat and makes​ hearing one of their most vitally acute senses.

So exquisite, in fact, that this binaural-beat-mastery allows snakes to actually feel your body's sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system vibrations: remain calm, they follow suit-tense up, they will also get defensive-as snakes are sensitive to sound-induced vibrations rather than sound pressure. In fact, a snake's nerve pulse response in their brain-that connects to their inner ear-is strongest with frequencies between 80 and 160 hertz—notes not often felt by snakes in the wild.

Though, this is the range frequency that's a fundamental criterion influencing the ability of alternating current (AC) to induce ventricular fibrillation (VF) in vivo to get the heart going...or in the case of an attentive constricting snake...when the heart stops.
