God of Tools, Workshops and Smiths

The son of MAWU-LISA, he started off as a humble trowel and was dispatched to Earth to do little odd jobs around the place — filling unsightly craters, fixing leaky oceans, that kind of thing.

The humans were very grateful and he was soon promoted to God of Smiths, Weapons and War. He has probably reached Black and Decker status by now.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Gu graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Gu movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Gu statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Gu. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
