MABON
Also known as MAPONOS

Welsh Love God.

He may or may not be Maponos. He may have been imprisoned when only 3 days old, and it may have been in Gloucester. He may have had a pet hound called Culhwch, and he may have taken a razor from between the ears of a wild boar, although what a razor was doing there in the first place is not al all clear. Is there a breed of pig called Razor Back?

Finally, he may have been something to do with King Arthur. In which case we wash our hands of the whole business.

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