Mito indiano de há uns muitos mil anos a.C.:
(…) the tenth Manu was the most famous of them all. It was when he ruled over the earth that the great flood occured, when everything was submerged and only Manu survived. The god Vishnu warned Manu of the flood, and Manu built a boat to carry his family and the seven sages of antiquity. Vishnu took the form of a large fish (…) and lodged the boat on a mountain peak.
