Builder Sergei Rahkmaninoff put so much thought and creativity into this 2019 Bio-Cup entry and the result is beautiful.

An ouroboros is “an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail” (according to Wikipedia). It represents the cycle of life and death (or death and rebirth). With this build, the artist explores the idea of wildfire as a beneficial and natural part of the lifecycle of forests.

In addition to being a thoughtful concept, the finished MOC is fantastic. The gradient from red to black to green is extremely well executed. Really a work of art!
