This coiled snake drawing is a bit different. In it we have a snake using coils of his own body to raise himself off the ground to see something off in the distance.
If you cropped off his body, the head is drawn much like that of a dragon. With fangs exposed and his tongue fully out, he still strangely looks friendly rather than fierce. In 1921, children all over the world were enjoying The Peacock and the Wishing Fairy and all of the wonderful illustrations it contained from Dugald Stewart Walker (1883-1937).
