The Lord of the Lower World. The creation of the world is attributed to him. In one story man at first multiplied so fast that they made the earth too crowded. Tuhan di-Bawah changed half of them into trees, thus reducing the number of mouths to feed, and introducing Death at the same time by way of relief.
