Lighting Serpent

Lighting Serpent

The Lighting Serpent is a feature of Aboriginal Australian lore. It is a great serpent that lives in the heavens and descends to Earth when it is stormy. The energy released from its striking and rebounding from the Earth is the lighting which heralds the welcome rain.
