A precious guardian for these small but crucial slivers of metal that mark the rhythms of our day. As one’s spirit or totem animal, the cobra signifies mysterious knowledge, fortune, longevity, and great protection. Alertness and action define this age-old symbol of royalty and power.

Decisiveness, the ability to think fast and come up with a solution when you encounter a problem, and never give up. That, too, is associated with the cobra. And the cobra is not one to let anybody trample on it. Or on loved ones. And it never forgets.

As valuable as its cargo, the way its golden body catches the slightest movement, the detail down to the smallest scale, the piercing red eyes – you may find the cobra will do more for you than just watch over your keys.
