How to make the Snake />Step 2) find your self a piece of wood that looks like a “Snake” lol,
a) if you can not find one, then find a piece of “green” wood/ vine
b) you can strip the bark or not, but it maybe a little stringy with “green” wood
c) once you fished that, while it is still “green” take it and wrap it around your Staff/ Caduceus
d) you can use sting/ hemp/etc. an {leave on if you like} to tie it down to the Staff/ Caduceus,
e) let the ” green” “Snake” wood cure for at least 6mons.
f) remove string/ etc. if you like
g) I would wait till the wood has cured till you put an stain/ finish such as Poly/etc. Now you have what is know as “Rod of Asclepius” –
sometimes also spelled Asklepios or Aesculapius), also known as the asklepian
Which is one snake wrapped around staff
H) see next step
