One of the most beautiful, deadly and health giving forms from the Baguazhang Animal Sets. The Snake represents water, however, unlike the Monkey who represents the 'Lake' with its bright and sparkling surface, the Snake's 'Water' is the fast flowing river. The river can get in anywhere and is very deadly. On the other hand, the river is also life giving, hence the Snake's excellent healing of the Spleen (nourishes), Kidneys and Liver. So the Snake also works upon the life force.
