Damballah is \u201cThe Great Master\u201d, the creator of the cosmos. Damballah is one of the most important of all the Loa. Damballa is the Sky Father and the primordial creator of all life. He rules the mind, intellect, and cosmic equilibrium. Damballah, as the serpent spirit and \u201cThe Great Master\u201d, 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.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\u2019s main sacrificial food\u2014an egg, the symbol of fertility and life.Catholic counterpart: St. Patrick (who drove the snakes out of Ireland).
