In Yoruba mythology, Oshunmare (also Oshumare, Oxumare) is a divine serpent which is believed to create the rainbow,[1] both male and female, and is a symbol of creation, human procreation and the link between the world of the mundane and that of the ancestors.[1] This idea is more a part of worship in the Americas than it is in West Africa.[2]
