How The World Was Created.

A myth submitted to the site by Elena

Asia

In the beginning there was nothing except a large egg. Suddenly the egg began to crack. slowly, a giant called Panku emerged. Out of the egg came the sky and earth. Panku noticed that the sky was about to crush the earth so he stood under it and pushed them away from each other.

Over time the earth and sky were far enough apart and stayed there by themselves. No longer needed, his breath became the wind; his voice the thunder; left eye the sun and right eye the moon; his body became the mountains and extremes of the world; his blood formed rivers; his muscles the fertile lands; his facial hair the stars and milky way; his fur the bushes and forests; his bones the valuable minerals; his bone marrows sacred diamonds; his sweat fell as rain; and the fleas on his fur carried by the wind became the fish and animals throughout the land. Slowly the animals became humans and the world was created from the great giant Panku.
