Haitian sequinned flag of Loa Danbalah Wedo, looking like Abraxas of the ancient Gnostic heresiarchs. Abraxas number was 365, the number of the days of the year. Abraxas was seen in different ways depending on the School of thought and period. Interesting analogy with the Snake Loa from Dahomey, ancestor of mankind, manifested as Dangbé or good Python in the Temple of Wydah, or the snake pet called Ball Python.
I am not saying that Abraxas is Danbalah!
Just sharing comparative religions ideas.
