Ta-aroa

Virginia Hamilton informs us: Ta-aroa lived alone in a shell shaped much like an egg. The egg revolved in the dark, empty space for ages. Then came a new time, and Ta-aroa broke out of the egg. Being so by himself, he made the god, Tu. Tu became Ta-aroa’s great companion and helper in the wonderful work of creation. Ta-aroa and Tu made gods to fill every place. They made the universe. And they brought forth land and creatures. Last, they created man to live on earth.
