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.
