OCEANIC MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Polynesia and the South Seas

FAUMEA

Oceanic Fertility Goddess

Mother Goddess of Fertility

Apparently she lived on an island — or possibly was the island — and secreted eels about her person in a way which only a lover or a dedicated customs officer could have detected.

These eels were deadly, but TANGAROA, not willing to risk his anatomy, managed to lure them out. A marriage proposal followed shortly thereafter.
