Nut is the goddess of the sky in ancient Egyptian religion. She was seen as a star-covered nude woman arching over the earth or as a cow. Nut is a daughter of Shu and Tefnut. Her brother and husband is Geb. She had four or five children: Osiris, Set, Isis, Nephthys, and—in early Egyptian sources—Horus. She is considered one of the oldest deities among the Egyptian pantheon.
