Under the influence of life forces, the egg cracked, revealing Svarog. From the egg came light, which made a shadow, from which Crnobog came from. The light also cast a glare on the Svarogos old sea, which created the god of water, Vodan. From the top egg shell dust, the World Tree, Ash Tree was created. It separated Earth from the heavans. his crown made the world of the gods, Nav. Svarog and Crnobog were a force with no form, so they created counterparts, in which they were counterparts of the world. Using gold powder from the bottom of the Earth and fire, Svarog made the moon and sun. From the lower half of the egg shell, Svarog made the creatures of earth.
