AMANA

Creator Goddess.

She started off riding on the crest of a wave which was the Milky Way and is full of sea creatures. She rides on a turtle and has a mermaid tail.

AMANA created the Sun for a bit of warmth but did not realize it was going to be so hot that it burnt the moon. So she has to constantly sink the sun in the ocean to prevent it from scorching and drying up the Earth.

She had to create two sons, TAMUSI and TAMULA, to help in her never-ending battle against the heat. TAMUSI does the day shift, slicing off sun ray serpents and casting them into the sky where they splutter out as comets and shooting stars.

TAMULA does the night shift and keeps the sun from shining with covers of darkness.

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