Lommen- Goddess Nut 1990

NUT – The Egyptian Goddess Nut was primarily the personification of the vault of the heavens. She was the mother of the heavenly bodies who were believed to enter her mouth and emerge again from her womb each day. Nut may have originally represented the Milky Way. The Milky Way at the winter solstice would have looked like a stretched out figure with arms and legs touching the horizons in exactly the manner in which the Goddess was depicted. She was also associated with resurrection, in that the dead became stars in the body of the Goddess.
