Ruaumoko (God of Seasons, Earthquakes, Volcanoes) is the youngest child of Ranginui (Sky Father) and Papatuanuku (Earth Mother). Ruaumoko is cradled in the womb of his mother still attached by the umbilical cord – this connection between mother and child before and after birth reflects the emotional ties between both mother and child as they grow and the unconditional love developed throughout.
