NUJU's Other Job...
Posted by Purple_Dave on January 27, 2002 at 12:19 AM CST:
This MOC diorama (which uses NUJU's MATATU) was so funny I just had to mention it here. I saw this posted by Mark Neumann on LUGNET, or you can go directly to the gallery here. And make sure you get a look inside the pit.

Anyways, for those of you who don't know what a fertility god is, notice the various fruits that have been placed in the giant hands. In Greek mythology, Demeter was a fertility goddess. Basically, the ancient Greeks would pray to her to make the earth fertile, so it would produce a bountiful harvest. In most ancient cultures, part of this process involved a symbolic 'sacrifice' of various fruits, vegetables, and grains. And what makes it so funny is that this type of worship was typically part of a gatherer/farmer society, and the Ewoks came across as a distinctly hunter-type culture. But maybe you have to be a mythology buff to understand...
