DILGA

Karadjeri Fertility Goddess

Dingo Goddess of Fertility with extremely proactive life-giving milk

She is the mother of the Bagadjimbiri Brothers, who performed amazing miracles of sexual reproduction for the benefit of humanity. As she’s a Fertility Goddess we can only imagine the skills they learnt at their mother’s knee. Sadly after all their hard work the lads ended up dead after a wild catfight.

Proud mum Dilga did not take this lying down and avenged their deaths with interest. Then she managed to bring her beloved boys back to life with her own very potent brand of milk.

Moral: don’t mess with a dingo’s mum.
