. . . The sky darkened,
there descended on the field a large table,
and on the table was a large quantity of earth.
Then there was lightning and thunder;
and Woyengi (the Mother) descended.
She seated herself on the chair
and placed her feet on the Creation Stone.
Out of the earth on the table
Woyengi moulded human beings . . .
