  Pan Gu

 

Thailand

Pan Gu, the cosmic giant of Chinese myth, of whom it is believed by the Chinese that he was the first ever living being and the creator of all. He slept in a black egg until he was born and started creation, using a chisel and hammer to separate the top and bottom part of the egg, thus creating heaven and earth, as well as yin-yang. He is here depicted holding a trigram with a yin-yang symbol in its centre.
