The ouroboros is an ancient symbol of infinity and self-reference. It is represented as a serpent or dragon eating its own tail. This one has assumed the form of a little dachshund dog.

The original dachshund was designed by Yara Yagi. My modification lies in folding the model from an elongated rectangle (around 1:10) and adding a locking mechanism for the tail inside the mouth.
