It is said that there was no man when the sky andthe earth were separated by Pangu. It was Nuwawho made human beings after her own model withyellow clay.
From then on, man began to live in peace andhappiness on the earth.
Unexpectedly, one year, the four-pillars supportingthe heaven suddenly collapsed and the earthcracked.
A great fire raged； torrential water flooded all the lands；fierce animals preyed on men. ThenNuwa melted five-colored stones, using them to mend the cracks in the sky.
To replace the broken pillars, she cut off the four legs of a huge turtle and used them tosupport the fallensky.
Thus the sky was patched up, its four corners were lifted, the flood was tamed, harmful animalswere killed, and the innocent people were able to restore their happy lives.
