The Gods and Spirits of Melanesia


Melanesian Fire Goddess ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Fire Goddess who jealously guarded her secret

Fire was all hers and no-one else was allowed to play with it! When mankind finally managed to filch a flame or two, she conjured up a rainstorm to extinguish the illicit fires.

Luckily, a snake managed to shield a burning ember and gave it back to mankind. Goga is still sulking.
