ALTJIRA

Creator God of the Dreamtime

In the beginning, ALTJIRA created the Earth and supplied everything that humans might need — then retired without leaving instructions. Luckily the world was slumbering quite happily in DREAMTIME and the primordial spirits managed to dream their way out of trouble.

Footnote: ALTJIRA is depicted as having emu's feet, for no reason we can fathom.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Altjira graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Altjira movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Altjira statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Altjira. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
