Two brother gods of the Karadjeri of northwestern Australia. The Bagadjimbiri are the namers of all things, and established culture and the initiation ceremonies. Eventually they decided to pass away, their bodies turning into water snakes and their spirits rising into the sky to become the Magellanic Clouds. They are the sons of Dilga.
