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.
