One assumes a powerful mythic creature brought fire from the sun and delivered it down to earth. Like a massive condor in a fire-retardant suit. However the old legends of Brittany and Normandy say it was the little wren who volunteers to fetch fire from heavan. He nearly dies in the herculean effort, returning with his body scorched and wings burnt off. The other birds each donate a feather to the naked wren. A case of exceptional pinot might have also been a fitting tribute.
