The European viper, or adder, was common in the cool climates of the ancient Celtic people. They enjoyed watching a snake work to shed his skin, then slither away leaving a form of himself behind while he progressed forward with a new fresh version of himself. To ancient Celts, each time a snake shed his skin, it appeared to have been reborn anew. There are numerous representations of snakes and serpents in Celtic artwork, including the later Christian manuscript art produced by Irish monks.
