Unfortunately, I can't comment on this one :)

But let me sidetrack. The five headed cobra was a sign of irrigation channels in ancient Sri Lanka, a hydraulic civilization where the Mahaweli Ganga was diverted to irrigate vast tracks of paddy land in the north central districts of the island and yield a rich agrarian surplus. The symbolism had Indic roots and if I remember right a California based cult in the 1970s appropriated it. This had something to do with the kidnapping of Patricia Hearst, the daughter of US Media Moghul.
