The Serpentine Bookmark

The Serpentine Bookmark was found in a book offering a high-level discussion of Ancient Greek mysticism within the library of the Wardens’ New York City headquarters.

The bookmark is made of sterling silver and takes the form of a stylized serpent. It’s jaw’s grasp some sort of stylized, bejeweled ornament — perhaps a lantern?  Its sinuous body lies flat against the pages of whatever book it is placed in, but seems to shift ever so slightly when one’s attention is drawn away from it. The coils of the snake appear to undulate with every sideways glance. It could be a trick of the light. Could be… but maybe not.
