The Black Water Snake is a limited edition pen collection from David Oscarson and is a follow-up to the 2012 Black Water Dragon. Dating back to 3000 BC, the Chinese Snake represents rebirth. It rides on the glory of the Dragon and can bring great achievements and success. The Year of the Snake is every 12 years and the Chinese calendar says 2013 is a strong Water year. The color of Water in the Chinese Astrology Five Elements System is related to Black and that means 2013 is a Black Water Snake year.
