Goddess Nut:

Goddess Nut is a prominent figure in ancient Egyptian mythology, often depicted as a woman adorned with stars, stretched across the sky, her body forming the canopy that covers the earth. She is the personification of the sky, often depicted as a vast, star-covered goddess who arches over the earth, with her feet and hands touching the four cardinal points. Nut is the daughter of Shu, the god of air, and Tefnut, the goddess of moisture, and she is also the sister and wife of Geb, the earth god.

One of the most famous myths involving Nut is the story of her conflict with Ra, the sun god. According to this myth, Ra forbade Nut from giving birth on any day of the year, fearing that her offspring would challenge his rule. However, Nut was already pregnant with five children: Osiris, Isis, Seth, Nephthys, and Horus the Elder. To help her children, Nut turned to Thoth, the god of wisdom, who devised a plan. Thoth gambled with the moon god Khonsu and won enough moonlight to create five additional days in the year. During these five days, Nut gave birth to her five children, effectively bypassing Ra's decree.

Nut is often associated with the afterlife as well. In Egyptian cosmology, she swallows the sun each evening, protecting it as it travels through the underworld during the night, and gives birth to it again each morning. This cycle of birth and rebirth became associated with the Egyptian beliefs about the journey of the soul through death and resurrection.

Her image, painted on the ceilings of tombs and temples, was believed to protect and guide the souls of the deceased on their journey to the afterlife. Nut's nurturing and protective aspects made her a beloved and revered goddess in ancient Egyptian religion, embodying the concepts of fertility, rebirth, and the eternal cycle of life.
