Osumare is a python with locs...the rainbow is her locs she is often considered to be the child of Nana Buruku along with Sakpata

she is female 6 months of the year and male 6 months of the year and in some houses she is considered to be an ancient road of Oshun

Aiedo Wedo is from the Fon pantheon of deities...she is a python and the rainbow is her body...she is the deities whose nams have been forgotten

her husband Damballah Wedo is also a python and he is white...he is the ancestors whose names have been forgotten

they exist entwined with each other and wrapped around the earth...they keep the atmosphere attached to the planet

Love...it is just friendship on fire.
