Two Gilling Gilling - Gudgeri. They got bead necklace each, 2 elbow up and hand down doing Bundimi dance. They have wavy headdress Bilbilb - like fan. The Gilling Gilling are all at Victoria River in Wardaman country in the caves. They still live in the caves today and they come out at night time and make a lot of noise. They're downstream from the pub and bridge at Victoria River. There's lots of white paint on the walls of those caves and in the Creation time they're dancing and doing all sorts of tricks.
