PERUN
Also known as PYERUN, PIORUN, PEROM, PERON, PERUSAN

Thunder God.

Very popular in the Stone Age when young girls danced themselves to death to honor him. Was it clog dancing? Could be the origin of the phrase 'popping your clogs'.

He's also known as PERKUNAS and all the other variations so you get a good run for your money.

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