The colorful deities and demons of India...

PURUSHA

Hindu Creator God

Very old Creator God

He has put himself about a bit. His eye is the Sun, his breath the Wind, his head the Sky... and other his bits are everything there is or ever has been. Later on he even became an Avatar of Vishnu.

He did all this chopping and changing by making great sacrifices of himself. If he ever decides upon reassembly the world will end.
