LAUMES
Also known as LAUMĖS, LAUMAS

Beautiful Spirits of Compassion

Originally a singular Goddess who was a bride of PERKUNAS, she somehow came to Earth and multiplied into a multitude of Baltic Nymphs.

Tales abound of fey women or spirits with big breasts and long blonde hair who bathe naked a lot.

Usually in such cases there's a sinister motive, but with the LAUMES it might just be worth it. To deny them an entry in Godchecker would only leave us open to accusations of sexism.

They are helpful and charitable, especially rewarding impoverished but hard-working people. Like fairies, they also have a darker side, punishing the lazy, evil-doers and guys who can't stop staring at their breasts.

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