Fuxi is the legendary god in the mythology of ancient China. He is also called Taihao or Taihao Fuxi. Legend says, by imitating the spider, he created a net to catch fish and animals. He invented the musical instrument, Se, a plucked instrument with 50 strings, and constituted the Eight Diagrams used in divination. He married his younger sister, Nvwa, and started the reproduction of offspring one generation after another. Thus they became the ancestors of the Chinese.

In the Han Dynasty (206 B.C. - 220), they were carved on stone as figures with both human heads and bodies of the snake. They are human-shaped from the waist up, but are snake-like below. The lower bodies are entangled together with each other.
