Oxumaré

Standing at an impressive four metres tall, Oxumaré (oh-shoo-mar-ay) shimmers all the colours of the rainbow – and shimmies with the best of them.

From the Candomblé tradition, Oxumaré is an androgynous deity that embodies the rainbow and the snake, symbolising fortune, time and transformation.

Oxumaré is accompanied by a single puppeteer whose gentle handling will get the puppet moving, encouraging your guests to follow suit.

Add a little shimmer to proceedings…
