Ayida Wedo – ‘The Serpent and the Rainbow’

‘The Serpent and the Rainbow’.
This is Ayida Wedo, wife of Damballah Wedo, who can be seen bottom left with the white egg. They are Rada (cool) spirits in Haitian Vodou and always called first in ceremony as they are the most pure. They bring rain and the rainbow, and are also associated with fertility, children, and good fortune. I made her body from shiny white holographic material that shines like a rainbow in the light.
