An ouroboros is an image of a serpent-like creature eating it's own tail & forming the most fundamental shape- the circle.

This article (titled after the mystical symbol) that I saw on Reality Sandwich is a nice summary & philosophical perspective of 20th century art.

Creating art is a metaphysical process & it can't truly be studied or understood without appreciation for the spiritual dimension of it. This is something every practicing artist already knows.
