13 Goddesses Week 6 - Egyptian: Nut

Hi Everyone ;o) Hope you're all doing well ;o)
It's week 6 of the 13 Goddesses Challenge ;o)

This week, I did Egyptian Goddess Nut ;o)

Nut is the Egyptian Sky-Goddess. Like Hathor, who is also a Sky-Goddess, Nut can take the form of a cow. She is also depicted as a slender woman whose arched body touches the earth with only the tips of her fingers and her tippy-toes. Her starry body forming the heavens.

Nut is also said to swallow the sun each night and give birth to him in the morning. Her sign is a vase shaped rather like a uterus. She also protects the dead and is painted on the inside of coffins. Her starry body embracing and protecting the deceased.









Next week Hindu Goddess Ganga ;o) Take care everyone ;o) Big Hugs ;o)
One more thing, I want to personally thank all of you, for your comments on my last painting. I know many of us are going through difficult times this year. That painting was calling out to me, to create. I am so happy it spoke to so many of you, because it was made with all of you in mind ;o) Make sure to keep dancing! ;o)xoxoxoxo

  7. you go girl! I'm loving the goddess series, and wish I could join you all.
    I saw your tissue paper experiment, and thought it was so beautiful!I always enjoy seeing WIPs, to see how a painting is created.
    I can totally relate to the Dance of life subject matter. It's been a very weird year for me, more melancholy than normal, that's why my poor blog is getting stale, lol!
    maybe new ideas are percolating, haha!

    have a great day Stacy

  13. I love her shine and the way she sways. She looks fluid. Quite charming. I went to your Etsy shop with the intention to purchase her, and somehow I fell in love with "Fear." Go figure you.

    I love how you can paint emotions, even the terrible ones. Okay, especially the terrible ones, because you give them wings and make them seem/feel less terrifying.

    Hugs, my friend.

    Peace to all.

  28. Oh - I remember this goddess from ancient history at school, I LOVE this Stacy, the depiction of this goddess is I think my favourite so far, look at her protecting the entire city & those starry sky, it also reminds me a little of indigenous Australian art with the line and dot work, yet it is uniquely YOUR style - beautiful... now I have that song 'Starry Starry night, paint your palette blue & white, look out on a summers night... etc, etc" cool art Stacy!!!
