A small illustration I did a few weeks ago (not a very good scan). I feel as though the serpent is metaphoric  for the devil (as is tradition) and he telling her to do his evil bidding whatever it may be. But who can say that the girl was ever innocent herself, under a spell? Perhaps she knows exactly what she is doing.

It is also yet another reference to one of my favourite fairy tales The Handless Maiden.
