OCEANIC MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Polynesia and the South Seas

TO-KABINANA

Oceanic Hero God

Perfect Spoiled Twin

Along with TO-KARVUVU they were the first animated brothers.

They burst into life from artwork by a distant anonymous God. TO-KABINANA did things right, TO-KARVUVU made a right carve up of trying to copy him. TO-KABINANA made a beautiful woman from a coconut. TO-KARVUVU ‘s effort was squat and ugly. TO-KABINANA carved a fine fish which could be used for a lure. TO-KARVUVU ‘s effort came out as a live shark.

When they were asked to take care of The Old Woman, possibly their mother, TO-KABINANA gave her eels on wheels — but TO-KARVUVU roasted and ate her.
