URPIHUA-CHAC

Goddess of Fish and Fishery.

This was a Goddess who owned the biggest fishpond of all time containing the world's stocks. She also had beautiful daughters which VIRACOCHA kept chasing, until they were forced to turn into to doves to escape him.

Poor old VIRACOCHA — he doesn't have much luck with his sex life. He was so frustrated he kicked down the pond walls and all the fish escaped into the sea and rivers so he didn't even get a fish supper.

Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Urpihua-chac 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.
