Also known as CARDEA

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