Nuit by AuroraMagorian Nuit by AuroraMagorian
My interpretation of Nuit, Egyptian goddess of the sky.

Far from her usual depiction, I decided on a bit of a contemporary edge.

A bit of info on Nuit:

Nuit (alternatively Nu, Nut, or Nuith) is the speaker in the first Chapter of The Book of the Law, the sacred text of Thelema received in 1904 by Aleister Crowley. Nuit is the Egyptian sky goddess who leans over her husband/brother, Geb, the Egyptian Earth God. She is usually depicted as a naked woman who is covered with stars and is arching on all fours over Geb. She represents the All, pure potentiality both as it flowers into the physical universe and as it resides beyond embodiment.

Within this system, she is one-third of the triadic cosmology, along with Hadit (her masculine counterpart), and Ra-Hoor-Khuit, the Crowned and Conquering Child. She has several titles, including the Queen of Infinite Space, Our Lady of the Stars, and Lady of the Starry Heaven. Nuit represents the infinitely-expanded circle whose circumference is unmeasurable and whose center is everywhere (whereas Hadit is the infinitely small point within the core of every single thing). According to Thelemic doctrine, it is the interaction between these two cosmic principles that creates the manifested universe similar to the gnostic syzygy.
