Australian Creator God

A Lizard Creator God

It’s okay to call him Flycatcher. He who made humans from logs. There must be a log book somewhere.

Apparently in the beginning humans were all fused together in a wooden lump. He separated them with a knife. His wood-carving skills were further demonstrated by whittling out ears, mouths and noses.

His own image is that of a very large lizard. So always be kind to lizards. He is not pleased if you kill one. Offer him flies.
