He is the rainmaker. He controls the weather. In our lore, the Wandjina with the help of the dreamtime snake, helped the boss Wandjina to create the world when the world was soft. Before going back to the spirit world, the Wandjinas painted their images on the rock and in the cave walls. Their eyes are like the eye of the cyclone. The lines and dots around the Wanjina’s head can mean a lot of things like rain, lightning and clouds.
