Fuxi and Nvwa in Ancient Chinese Mythic Legends

Story has it that Fuxi is not only the clan leader in the east and the chief of the three sage kings and five virtuous emperors of China at the dawn of human civilization, but also an omnipotent wise man capable of various kinds of skills. He created the Eight Diagrams and simulated the spider to weave fishing net. He was not only able to make musical instruments, but also good at cooking tasty food. Moreover, he contributed a lot to the traditional Chinese medicine and was the forefather of Chinese civilization. He also formulated etiquettes and regulations for people, reducing the barbaric marriage by plundering.

Nvwa is a famous female leader during the remote legendary period of China, provided with powerful abilities. It is said that a great disaster once took place in nature and then the heaven collapsed, the earth was sunken, and wild beasts cruelly killed common people. Nvwa repaired the heaven with colored rocks and killed the brutal beasts. She also used clay to create humans and human society by simulating her own appearance. It is also said that Nvwa invented a kind of musical instrument called reed pipe wind instrument so that she is esteemed as a musical goddess. Moreover, she created the marriage system to enable humans to multiply offspring, so she is called the marriage goddess.
