PanguIn Chinese mythology Pangu (盤古) was the first living thing and the creator of the Cosmos. According to Chinese mythology (cosmology), in the beginning there was nothing in the Universe except formless chaos, but then this chaos began to gather and formed a cosmic egg. Within this the perfectly opposed principles of Yin and Yang became balanced and Pangu, the first living thing, emerged from the egg.
Pangu is usually depicted as a primitive hairy giant clad in furs, much like Hercules. Pangu set about the task of creating the world: he separated Yin from Yang, creating the earth and the sky by forcing them apart. The task took eighteen thousand years, Each day the sky grew ten feet higher, the earth ten feet wider and Pangu ten feet taller. In some versions of the story Pangu is aided in this task by the four most fortunate beasts namely the Dragon, the Qilin, the Phoenix and the Turtle.
After eighteen thousand years had elapsed Pangu died. His body became the mountains of the world, his blood, sweat and tears the oceans and rivers, his eyes the sun and the moon, his breath the wind, his voice thunder, his hair forests and the fleas on his body the human race, although other stories say humans were created later either by Yu Huang The Jade Emperor or by the goddess Nuwa.
