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

Abu Simbel Temple

Abu Simbel Photo © Stevyn Llewellyn

This was taken at the Abu Simbel temples in Egypt. Created for Ramses II and his queen Nefertari. This site was the furthest south we went in Egypt. While most images show the exteriors of these temples, the insides are equally amazing, with towering statues within. Everything in Egypt was so grandiose and of epic porportions, it is an endlessly inspiring place.

You can pick up a print of this here.

The Pyramids of Giza

© Stevyn Llewellyn 2010

This is the “classic” shot of the pyramids of Giza I took in 2010. In order to get this angle, you need to walk out a bit into the desert. Words cannot describe the immensity of these.
Coming here was a fulfillment of a lifelong dream for me, and I was fortunate enough to share this moment with my brother whom accompanied me here.
