The scorpion is a very solitary insect. It finds its protection in its deadly sting and isolation. It is a suitable subject for those who want to represent a love life that has enjoyed brief moments of deep passion alternating with long periods of solitude. The scorpion is an insect that couples in a unique way. After a long dance the male is given a brief embrace. When the time comes to procreate the female gives only brief moments to the newly born. As soon as the exoskeleton is fully formed, even the young are left on their own.

The scorpion is an insect that can be found from the time of Greek-Roman culture, where it was associated with death: Artemis uses one of these animals to sting Orion's foot, causing his death. Later Zeus himself uses the figure to create a constellation in the heavens. In Tibet and Egypt, instead, it is seen as an omen and is used as an amulet to ward off evil, whilst in Africa it is considered a symbol of healing. Its powerful poison is, in fact, still used for medicinal purposes.
