The Gordian Knot represents a difficult, intractable and often insolvable
problem. The oracle declared that anyone who succeeded in untying the
knot would be the conqueror of all Asia. The knot stayed tied until the arrival
of Alexander the Great who cheated on the oracle by cutting the knot with
his sword. The ouroboros dragon biting its own tail is yet another symbolic
representation of the Gordian knot.
