The Ouroboros often symbolizes self-reflexivity or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself.
Experts often disagree if the Golden Hoop ever really existed. There has never been any proof until now. The mystery started a week ago when I received a letter from the Post Office stating that the building where I live doesn't exist. After a few e-mails and phone calls, the package finally arrived. But could this really be the Golden Hoop? With the postage being 41.99 euros ($56.21 USD, that's like 20 Happy Meals+ one milk shake), it very well could be.
After more cutting, I discovered that this was not the Golden Hoop after all. It was a bicycle wheel rim with the following inscription; "Well der Artist in Seine. It ain't easy being creative and original all the time. I'm pretty sure you know that well enough. I've found the "Bicycle Wheel" somewhere in the street. It's now yours. better not show it to "serious" folks. They would most probably advise you to throw it away.
A wonderful example of Ouroboros and extreme Mail Art. To me it's worth more than a Golden Hoop, but it would have been nice to solve that legend I made up.
Thank you Ouroboros Erni. I am forever in debt to you. PS: More photos to come. I ran out of space.
