ULANJI

Australian Ancestral God

Snaky Ancestral God

He’s the ancient ancestor of the Binbinga tribe and very venerable.

According to the legends, he climbed rocks and bit the heads off a number of flying foxes. He then removed his heart and took out two of his ribs. No-one seems to know exactly why he did this. As soon as we find out, we’ll get back to you.
