Yggdrasil, the World Tree, a symbol of unity and connectedness, along with Nidhogg/Jormungandr whatever you want it to be.

No, Jormunder is the world serpent. Nidhogg sits at the bottom of the tree sucking on the roots.

If you read the comment I posted to a previous guy that pointed that out, you would've seen that 'Sorry - I made this years ago when I wasn't as knowledgable/was a typo; completely forgot about it. But thank you though.'

Sorry - I just think its funny its been on here for five years and no one said anything till this year.

Wonderful, brilliant. :D

Oh..But just for a quick pointer, and this is just my love fore the tale coming through.. I mean not to pry. But Níðhöggr or Nidhogg was a dragon/lizard creature that gnawed at the roots of Yggdrasil, The creature you seem to be depicting is Jörmungandr, who is as you say, the world snake or Midgard snake that wrapped himself around the world as a symbol of continuity.

Quite detailed and interesting work.
The branches are very close to many Celtic designs and the Serpent reminds me of Medeival Dragon pictograms and paintings.
Still a wonderful piece of art, nonetheless.
