A Rainbow Serpent from the Dreamtime mythology of Australia. It is a cosmic multi-coloured python that lives in deep waters. It created the landscape as it rose from the depths of its habitat. He is known to sleep in the mud during the dry season and flies to the sky as a rainbow sending down rain to help life re-grow during the wet season. He has a fascination for anything that is iridescent. Taipan protects its people but it does punish those that break the law. Taipan helps its people by sending down cooling rains during times of intense heat.
