AFRICAN MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of Africa

ZANAHARY

African Creator God/dess

Also known as ZANAHARIBE

A Creator God with a split personality

He is both male and female, which always makes life interesting. But his Sky side doesn’t get on with his Earth side.

The Heavenly ZANAHARY breathes life into the bodies that Earthly ZANAHARY creates from the clay, but this always leads to arguments. And the quibbling of Gods is never a good thing for humans. Result: mortality and death.
