TANE

God of Light. He lets light into the world every day by lifting up a corner of the dark sky.

He's also responsible for forests and trees, and invented the tasty Tui bird.

TANE seems to work overtime under the name TANE-MAHUTA. He's also associated in some obscure way with the Hawaiian KANE, and son of Polynesian Creator God RANGI.

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