Image of the heraldic term: Biscia
snake placed undulating, generally in pole, with the head turned to the right. If it passes around the neck of another animal it is said to be "accollante", if it comes out with the upper part of the body from a partition or piece it is said to be "nascent". Only the profile head can be present.
