The Rainbow Serpent for the Jawoyn people who inhabit the second gorge deep pool at Nitmiluk in Australia. The Bolong like all other Rainbow Seprents is a cosmic multi-coloured python that lives in deep waters. The ancient spirit summoned it from the deep to carve out the landscape. Bolong thus created the formation for gullies, rivers and billabongs. He is known to sleep in the mud during the dry season and flies to the sky as a rainbow sending down rain to help life re-grow during the wet season. He has a fascination for anything that is iridescent. Bolong protects its people but it does punish those that break the law. Bolong is closely link in with the land, weather, society and fertility.
