MEDEINA
Also known as MEIDEIN, MEIDENE, ZVORUNA, ŽVORŪNA

Hunting Goddess of the Forest

She is an ARTEMIS-like figure, a formidable hunting goddess accompanied by wolves.

Her mascot is a bounding hare. She leaps through Lithuania and even into Poland and elsewhere.

She is apparently single but we have Grove God GIRAITIS listed as her lover. Casual fling?

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