The ancient Egyptian goddess, Nut, carried the role of the cosmic divine and was the universal cradle for the resurrection of human souls after death, protecting, nursing, and bearing the souls along their journey to the afterlife as depicted on numerous sarcophagi from various historic periods. The sun god, Ra, undergoes this journey of death and rebirth every night, so does Nut/God kiss us to sleep to transfer our souls to the unconscious world as we join the sun? 36x48 inches, oil on canvas.
