Midgard is a realm in Norse mythology. Pictured as placed somewhere in the middle of Yggdrasil, Midgard is surrounded by a world of water, or ocean, that is impassable. The ocean is inhabited by the great sea serpent Jörmungandr (Miðgarðsormr), who is so huge that he encircles the world entirely, grasping his own tail. The concept is similar to that of the Ouroboros.

Ouroboros in Père Lachaise cemetery

Ouroboros in Pere Lachaise Cemetery, Paris. The ouroboros is traditionally depicted as a serpent or dragon swallowing its own tail, resulting in a circle. The ouroboros is regarded as a symbol of infinity and renewal.

Zeus, ruler of heaven, and Hades, ruler of the underworld, were later combined into one, supreme new figure: “One Zeus, one Hades, one Sarapis” (Julian, Orat. 4, 135: FRA 538). Thus Zeus-Sarapis was sometimes shown on a throne as king of heaven, or with the three-headed dog of Hades, Cerberus. He was associated with the symbol of the snake, either in the form of the Caduceus used by Ascelpius, or as the head of Draco – symbolizing the return journey of the soul.

Ouroboros and Tree of Life The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail. The name originates from within Greek language; (oura) meaning "tail" and (boros) meaning "eating", thus "he who eats the tail".  The Ouroboros represents the perpetual cyclic renewal of life and infinity, the concept of eternity and the eternal return, and represents the cycle of life, death and rebirth, leading to immortality, as in the Phoenix.
