Nuit The Sky Goddess

Nuit, The Sky Goddess. Prints available here.

Nuit, The Sky Goddess. Also known as Nut, the Egyptian goddess of stars.

This was inspired by my trip to Egypt in 2010 and being in awe of the enormous representations of this deity. The painting took about 6 months to complete in mid 2018 to January of 2019. The painting consists of a multitude of stars that form the body of the ancient goddess. The original painting is available for sale here — https://www.saatchiart.com/art/Painting-Nuit-The-Sky-Goddess/717162/4678735/view
