VIETNAMESE MYTHOLOGY: THE GOD OF FIRE

AH NHI – The Vietnamese god of fire. The child of the sun goddess, he is often depicted holding a burning golden crow similar to the golden roosters that adorn his mother’s palanquin. In other myths about the fire god this flaming crow is depicted as being large enough for Ah Nhi to ride on his journeys between the heavens and the Earth. Ah Nhi taught humanity the use of fire and how to strike stones together to generate sparks and then use dry twigs and leaves to build those sparks into a flame to cook food and provide warmth.
