Xihe - Goddess of the sun

Xihe is a sun goddess and one of the wives of Emperor Jun, the most mighty God of them all. She was the mother of Ten Suns, in the form of Three-legged crows, who lived in a Mullberry Tree. Each day Xihe bathed one of her children in the river and the child-Sun would fly up into the sky and be the Sun for each day. One day all ten sun birds came out on the same day, causing the world to burn. Houyi the archer shoot down all but one of the sun birds which has to be the Sun everyday so that the world has light. She is said to have created the calendar.
