HAYICANAKO

Elderly Goddess who has the world on a stick

'The Old Woman Beneath Us'. She holds the pole supporting the Earth and gives it a shake now and then if she is not happy about something.

In case of earthquakes it is best to placate her by pouring some melting fat on the fire — it will drip down until it reaches her.

We are not sure about this but think she may hold the world like a big toffee apple on a stick.

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