The Goddess: Nut

The Goddess: Nut

Egyptian Sky Goddess. Her body curves over Mother Earth, feet in the east, arms reaching down to touch the Earth in the West. Sunrise’s glow is said to be her blood from giving birth to the sun each day. She swallowed the moon and the stars and her belly became the starry night. She is the source of the rainbow.

“O my mother Nut, stretch yourself over me, place me among the imperishable stars, that I live eternally like you.”

~~ Egyptian Pharoah Queen Hapshepsut, ruled 1503-1482 BCE
