Goddess Papatuanuku

 


Maori Earth Mother, Papatuanuku.

Papatuanuku is revered by the Maori of New Zealand as the mother of humans, animals, and forests.

She provides nourishment for the planet, and in return, parents pledge their children's fealty to her.

Papatuanuku's rage generates earthquakes when she is forcefully taken from her lover Rangi Nui.
