VAIZGANTAS
Also known as VAIŽGANTAS

God of Hemp and Flax.

These are the plants valued for their fibers, which are highly pliable yet strong enough to make ropes and cords and rough textiles. In fact hemp is one of the most versatile plants going — and you can even eat it.

What we don't know is if this God had strong moral fiber, because hemp is also associated with cannabis. He may have had a joint round the corner and be a God with a spliff personality.

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