Biliku is the Andamanese Island Goddess of creation and weather. She is a giant spider who wove webs in the sky. One day, bored with the empty sky, she sat down and made the Earth. She then made people to live on the earth, along with the plants and animals. She was so happy with the Earth that she went to live on it herself. Biliku made a fire for her home by striking a shell with a stone. After she fell asleep, a kingfisher came to steal the fire so that he could give it to man. Biliku woke up and saw him, and hurled a lightning bolt at him. She then returned to the sky, where she still flings lightning bolts and causes great storms when she gets upset.
