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
