Ophrys neglecta is said to represent the perfect unity and equality of male and female in the creation of the cosmos. The genus Ophrys is a large group of orchids from the alliance Orchis,they are remarkable in that they successfully reproduce through pseudocopulation, that is, their flowers mimic female insects to such a degree that amorous males are fooled into mating with the flowers, thereby pollinating them. There are many natural hybrids.

JULUNGGUL is the Aboriginal Goddess of rain, water, and initiation. She is the great Rainbow Snake of the Dreamtime, which preceded the coming of man. Sometimes seen as male, sometimes as female, Julunggul created all the rivers of the land, and then went to live in the bottom of a deep waterhole .
She is also Lilith, According to Jewish folklore Lilith was Adam’s first wife,She represents the deeper, darker fear men have of women and female sexuality. Inasmuch as female sexuality, as a result of this fear, has been repressed and subjected to the severest controls in Western patriarchal society, so too has the figure of Lilith been kept hidden.
