Nut is a primordial deity representing Sky. She is the daughter of Shu and Tefnut. She is typically depicted as a human in an arched pose, with only her toes and fingertips touching the earth. Her body is covered with stars. Sometimes, she is depicted as a giant cow. Together with her brother Geb, she had children Osirus, Set, Isis, Nepthys (and, in some variations of the myth, Horus the Elder). She is a protective goddess, and her image is often painted on the ceiling of tombs, or the lids of sarcophagi.
