ANJEA is a fertility spirit engrained in North Queensland aboriginal mythology. People’s souls reside within her between their incarnations. She picks them up at their resting places in the sand, which are marked with twigs. The twigs are arranged in the ground to form a circle and tied at the top so as the resulting structure resembles a cone. The spirits are taken away for several years, but ANJEA eventually creates new children from mud and places them in the wombs of future mothers continuing the cycle of the eternal spirit.
