San Martin Txiki

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

San Martin Txiki ("Little Saint Martin") is the Trickster figure from Basque mythology.
"Txiki" (pronounced "cheeky") means "little" in an affectionate sense. San Martin is often called simply "Martintxiki" or "Samartitxiki". He stole the secrets of planting, sowing, and harvesting from the Basajauns (lords of the woods). He also invented the first saws, modeling them after the edges of the chestnut leaf.
