Bagadjimbiri

Australian - Creator-gods of the Aborigines. These two brothers came up out of the earth in the form of dingos, mated a toadstool with a fungus to produce humans and gave the gift of reproduction to the first people. The brothers grew into giants as high as the sky, but were killed in a dispute with the cat-man, Ngariman, and his tribe. The earth-goddess, Dilga, drowned the killers with a flood of milk from her breasts, restoring the brothers to life at the same time. When they finally died they turned into water snakes. On occassion, identified as Bagadjimbiri.
