Journey of the Old Man Echidna and Family


In the Dreamtime, Old Man Echidna lived apart from his people. He was too old to hunt. The Aboriginal men sought out the echidna and threw spears at him until they formed a bristling mass on his back. They broke his arms and legs. Echidna crawled into a hollow log and stayed there until his wounds healed. When he finally emerged, his arms and legs, though terribly bent, were still able to carry him but neither he, nor his wife Nunkito, were able to pull the spears from his body.
