FAUMEA

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.

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