Fu Xi

Yin & Yang
Fu Xi (mid 2800s BCE) was the first of the Three Sovereigns of ancient China, who according to legend recreated mankind from clay on the Kunlun mountains with his sister Nuwa, after a great deluge sumbmerged the land and destroyed all humanity. He is reputed to be the originator of the I Ching, an ancinet text of divination & philosophy, which contains the concepts of yin and yang, a pair of complementary forces said to keep the universe in dynamic balance.
