Four Directional Serpent Gods of Rain

Also among the ALPHABET-GODS they are the team known as God H. H is for Hissing. They are four Rain Serpents who create rain clouds from the bottom of their lakes. So blame them when it's hissing down with rain.

Unusually for Rain Gods, the CHICCAN are associated with the four cardinal directions, just like the BACABS — with color coding to match. Their favorite number is nine. Consult your Mayan calendar.

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