Symbol of creation, equilibrium, and intellect.
Damballah is one of voodoo’s most powerful spirits. He takes the form of a big white serpent. The Grand Met, or god of gods, was said to have created Damballah. All life was created by Damballah. He created the stars and planets with his coils. His shedded serpent skin is the earth’s rivers. He is in charge of cosmic balance, the mind, and intellect. Moses and Saint Patrick are both identified with him.
