I must say I assumed they represent death - snails in coffins, snails that eat life, and that anyone fighting a snail is resisting death - but inevitably losing. The earlier ones also seem to be spitting (not just horns at the front there?) so I wonder if there is any mythology about the poisonous nature of slime ... Fascinating.
