WUNI

Creator God of garbled messages

Hmm. Here we have very similar circumstances to those of KALUMBA and CHUKU. But this time involving a dog and a goat.

In the beginning, humans were having a tough time of it on Earth. There was nothing but endless toil and unceasing horribleness. "It's a dog's life down here," they said. So they sent a dog up to Heaven to complain.

Unfortunately, on the way to the complaints department, the dog got sidetracked looking for a bone, and passed the message on to a goat instead.

The goat's bleatings were somewhat garbled and WUNI, leaping to the wrong conclusion, decided to end human misery by sending death.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Wuni graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Wuni 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 Wuni statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Wuni. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
