South America, Maya: In the beginning there were no people, just four gods in heaven above.
The four gods decided to make a creature to enjoy the world below and to worship them. First, the yellow god tried to make a human from clay, but it dissolved in water. Then the red god tried wood, but it burned up when tested with fire. The black god suggested gold. The gold human looked beautiful, and it endured the fire and water tests. But the gold human was unable to move and so could not express praise to the gods. Finally, the fourth god, who was colorless, cut off his fingers. They fell to earth and took human form. The humans made of flesh worshipped the gods and the gods were thrilled.
