One of the Rainbow Serpents of the Dreamtime animals from the mythology of the Australian Natives. It is a cosmic multi-coloured python that lives in deep waters. It created the formation for gullies, rivers and billabongs. Wulungu now rests under the Earth supporting the four pillars of cardinal directions that support the Earth itself. 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.
