Funzi

by Micha F. Lindemans
The mythical blacksmith of the Fjort people (French Congo) in Africa. He appears in their mythology subsequent to the stories about the gift of fire, which the Fjort received from a river deity. The moment they had fire, Funzi appeared and taught them how to work in iron and copper. They also accredit him for making the lightning.
