The Sky Goddess Nut
Nut was a sky goddess, usually human, whose body the sun traveled at night to be reborn each morning. In the Heliopolitan doctrine of the ennead she was considered to be the daughter of Shu, sister/wife of Geb, and mother of Isis, Osiris, Seth, and Nephthys. Because she represented rebirth, scenes are commonly found on the ceilings of the royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings.
