The Legends
• Fu Xi
Fu Xi is the first of three noble emperors, the San Huang, in Chinese mythology. According to folklore he ruled from 2952 to 2836 BC (116 years) or from 2852 to 2737 BC (115 years).Fu Xi taught mankind arts, such as fishing, the breeding of silk worms, and taming wild animals. He also invented music, and, most importantly, the eight trigrams, which are said to be the basis of all Chinese writing. Also attributed to him is the invention of casting oracles by the use of yarrow stalks. Fu Xi is also said to have invented the one hundred Chinese family names, and ordered that marriages may only take place between persons bearing different family names.Fu Xi is represented as a human being with the body of a snake. He's married to his sister Nu Wa, the creation Goddess. In Taoist temples he is usually portrayed holding a panel on which the eight trigrams are inscribed. They represent the heavens.

• Nu Wa
Nu Wa is the Chinese creation goddess, who created the first humans from the yellow earth, after Heaven and Earth had separated. Since this process was too tedious and time-consuming she dipped a rope into mud and then swung it about her. Soon the earth around her was covered with lumps of mud. The handmade figurines became the wealthy and the noble; those that arose from the splashes of mud were the poor and the common.Nu Wa is one of the most popular goddesses in Chinese custom. And she is worshipped both as the intermediary between men and women, and as the goddess who grants children. She invented the whistle, instituted marriage and instructed mankind in the art of building dams and channels for irrigation. Nu Wa is also credited with the restoration of the universe after it had been devastated by the monster Gong Gong. One particular myth tells us that at a certain time, the cardinal points where no longer in the proper place, exposing the nine realms. Nu Wa melted coloured stones to mend the azure skies, cut off the legs of a turtle to support the cardinal points, and slew a black dragon to save the land of the Qi. Another myth states that beyond the northwesters ocean there live ten ghosts who were fashioned from Nu Wa's bowels.
