The dramatic tale of Wititj, the Olive Python, and the two sisters of the Wagilag clan forms the basis of one of the most important Aboriginal ceremonial cycles and painting traditions. These mythical events herald the arrival of the first monsoon season as well as providing the basis for ritual activity and religious knowledge.
