LONO

Delightful Hawaiian God of Fertility, Music and Food

Part of the Hawaiian creator quad-god collection along with KU, KANE and his twin brother KANALOA, he makes the crops grow and the rains bow.

A cheerful deity of peace, he hates war and much prefers a good sing-song. Why can't all deities be like him?

According to legend, LONO slid down to Earth on the curve of a rainbow and hitched up with hula-dancing LAKA.

LONO loves a good feast and is particularly partial to sweet potato. If you need some rainfall, please give him a large portion. Prayers accompanied by a tuneful guitar always welcome too.

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