Yes it is interesting, now that you mention it, he could be guarding the boxes, just as the serpent of the ouroboros incubates the egg of the world.

I find it interesting that he serves (as per MP's text, above) as a symbol of flexibility - suggesting a way of transcending those limits which are represented by the boxes.

I said in my opening post that the last box does not lead to another, but in fact, doesn't the image suggest a long square tunnel with light at the end? Does not the final box open into the light?
