About This Piece

This story relates how two brothers killed a very large bird that had killed many of their people. They took her feathers and divided them into two piles - one pile becoming a cock bird and the other pile a hen bird. From that day on smaller races were born and were called Emu. To this day, it is noticeable in the double feathers of all emus which consist of two shafts. The Emu's Spirit now occupies a symbol in the constallation of stars in the universe.
