Damballah, the Eastern Light (Sun), is the Sky Father who assisted Bondye in creating the world. The sign of Damballah is the twin serpent. He is the first loa and father to all others, the primordial creator of all life. Damballah, the serpent spirit and “The Great Master”, created the cosmos by using his 7,000 coils to form the stars and the planets in the heavens and to shape the hills and valleys on earth. By shedding the serpent skin, Damballa created all the waters on the earth. He rules the mind, intellect, wisdom, and cosmic equilibrium, and helps sustain the world as the source of all energy and life force. Damballah’s dominion over intellect and wisdom comes from his uniting connection between the past, present, and future. Because of this role he is often associated with the ancestors.
Damballah, the patriarchal serpent divinity, is an ancient water spirit associated with rain, wisdom, and fertility. Damballah is usually entwined with his wife Ayida Wedo, the rainbow. Damballah is often represented as St. Patrick (who mastered the serpents of Ireland), and sometimes as the patriarchal Moses holding the Ten Commandments. In many temples, a permanent basin of water is maintained for the Loa. Many representations include Damballah’s main sacrificial food—an egg, the symbol of fertility and life.
