Uheita

Japanese - A peasant. He captured a witch and threw her on the fire in his house. She jumped off but could not escape from the room so she turned herself into a copy of the statue of Kwannon which stood on the peasant's shrine. He chose the right one by making an offering at which the real goddess smiled and quickly threw the other into a pot of boiling water where she died. Occasionally identified as Uheita.
