First Woman

Eastern pantheon

Allgiver was fashioned by Empress Earth, who pitied the lost and lonely Wild Man. Allgiver tamed Wild Man, married and had a child by him — Aptanace the Sage, the first civilized being.

She is usually portrayed as a tall oriental woman wearing whatever fashions were popular when the painting was made. She always has a tall jar at her side. A never ending river of pure water flows from her left hand and a lock of her hair trails off into the golden heavens.
