    In our town we have a sculpture of an egg and serpent. The egg represents birth and potential. The serpent sheds its skin and renews itself, a token of resurrection. Is this the same as in your part of the world?

      Renewal would apply in the caduceus, as it represents the healer of those who have become ill or damaged. The two-headed snake, however, has many other connotations.
