Year of the Snake 2013: Snake Charmer
This lovely Snake Charmer gives a breathtakingly seductive smile to the observer!
Because I am afraid of snakes, I thought for a while how to show a snake, that does not look threatening. Then circus attractions came to my mind, where beautiful women dance lightly with giant constrictor snakes. Or Arab countries where snake charmers sit cross-legged on the ground and make their snakes sway as if hypnotized by the music of a flute. Snakes are scary, but also fascinating. This beautiful Snake Charmer has the snake under control with the help of her flute-like instrument made from a gourd, known as a been or pungi.
Perhaps we should face any kind of danger with music and a gentle smile and everything will be all right?
