Adaheli

by Micha F. Lindemans
The personification of the Sun. He was troubled by the fact that there were no people on the Earth and so descended from his heaven. Soon afterwards, people were born of the cayman. The women were all extremely beautiful but some of the men were so ugly that the others found them intolerable to their gaze. The people separated, with the ugly ones going to the east and the others to the west, each with their respective wifes.

Orinoco region, Carib.
