Australian Moon God

Also known as KIDILLI

Horny old Moon God

This peeping God spent his time spying on all the beautiful ladies down here on Earth. Finally he could stand it no longer and descended in a passion of lunar lust.

But his advances were spurned — and so was he after the WATI-KUTJARA castrated him with a boomerang. He died in a waterhole and his intended victims retreated into the night sky to become the Pleiades.
