In either case, one must be devoured by Lucifer. Above in the heavens, one becomes a Naga of Resurrection, a serpent King, when Binah swallows the lower seven Sephiroth. But down below, Lucifer as Satan masticates the lost souls until they are cosmic dust, and in the end one gains nothing but pain. Through Resurrection comes knowledge, or better said: Understanding (Binah); yet down below one gains the long-drawn agony of bitter death throws.
The Biscione (Italian for ‘large grass snake’), also known as the Vipera (‘viper’ or in Milanese as the Bissa), is a heraldic charge showing in Argent an Azure serpent in the act of consuming a human; usually a child and sometimes described as a Moor. It has been the emblem of the Italian Visconti family for around a thousand years. Its origins are unknown. However it has been claimed that it was taken from the coat of arms of a Saracen killed by Ottone Visconti during the Crusades. Additionally, a man being swallowed by a serpent but being rescued features in a number of legends about Theoderic the Great, most prominently in the poem Virginal, where the city of Arona, which was owned by the Visconti, is featured.
The biscione appears also in the coats of arms of the House of Sforza, the city of Milan, the historical Duchy of Milan and Insubria, as well as the Polish town of Sanok. It is also used as a symbol or logo by the football club Internazionale, by espresso machine manufacturer Bezzera, by Alfa Romeo and, in a version where a flower replaces the child, by Fininvest.
