"HSI-HO "IS A CHINESE SUN GODDESS. HER TITLE IS THE" LADY OF THE TEN SUNS. "SHE IS THE MOTHER OF THESE TEN SUNS...ONE FOR EACH DAY OF A TEN DAY CYCLE. THIS SUN GODDESS LIVED FAR BEYOND THE HORIZON OF THE EASTERN SEAS.AS A MAJOR FIGURE IN THE OLDEST STRATUM OF CHINESE MYTHOLOGY, "HSI-HO" CONTROLS THE TIME EACH SUN HAS A TURN IN LIGHTING THE WORLD.

IT IS SAID THAT EARLY EACH MORNING, "HSI-HO" GOES TO THE EDGE OF THE WORLD IN THE EAST WHERE IIT IS SAID THAT THE "FU-SANG "TREE, A DIVINE PLANT WHICH REPRESENTS THE EAST, THE SUN, BLOOMS. HERE HER CHILDREN, THE SUNS, HANG FROM THE BRANCHES OF THIS HUGE TREE. EVERY MORNING SHE BATHES TAKES THEM DOWN AND BATHES THEM IN THE EASTERN LAKE, AFTERWARDS PLACING THE ONE WHOSE TURN IT IS INTO A CHARIOT DRAWN BY DRAGONS SO HE CAN SHINE BRIGHTLY THROUGHOUT THE DAY. THE OTHERS THEN WAIT THEIR TURN ON THE BRANCHES OF THE TREE.

THE LEGEND OF "HSI-HU" OFFERS EVIDENCE OF A MATRIARCHAL SOCIETY IN EARLY CHINA. IT WAS A TIME THAT THE MOTHER WAS THE CENTRAL FIGURE OF THE FAMILY JUST AS THE SUN IS THE CENTRAL FIGURE FOR LIFE HERE ON EARTH. THEN, WITH THE ADVENT OF PATRIARCHY, THE "GODDESS" AND WOMEN'S MATRIARCHIES WERE OVERTHROWN AND SUBMERGED THROUGHOUT THE CENTURIES.
