AKURRA- eyeshadow - DISCONTINUED
Akurra is an aboriginal serpent deity who was associated with the fertility and greening of the land. In her research, Kristen has been finding that a lot of dragon mythology intersects with stories about serpent deities, in all areas of the world. Some cultures regard water serpents as dragons, and some dragons are called "wyverns" (worms) and have two short arms and wings, while some don't have wings at all.
From Wikipedia: "In the mythology of the Aboriginal people of South Australia (specifically, the Adnyamathanha people from the Flinders Ranges, Akurra is a great snake deity, sometimes associated with the Rainbow Serpent.Adnyamathanha elders describe it as a giant water snake with a beard mane, scales and sharp fangs, whose movements shaped the land. Akurra is associated with the power of the shaman, and nobody else may go near him with impunity. Akurra is also connected with water and rain. According to one Adnyamathanha story, at times of drought the shamans would travel to the cave in which Akurra lived, draw the snake out and take his kidney fat, which they heated over a fire, allowing the melted fat to fall over the coals. A strong wind would begin as the smell of burning fat rose into the sky, the clouds would open and the rain would come in a downpour, revitalising the land."
