In Egyptian mythology, Nut was the sky goddess. She is the daughter of Shu and Tefnut. It is said that every evening the sun god Ra enters her mouth after the sun sets and is reborn each morning. The godess Nut was also said to have swallowed and rebirthed the stars. She was a goddess of death, and her image is on the inside of most sarcophagi. The pharaoh entered her body after death and was later resurrected. In art, Nut is depicted as a woman wearing no clothes, covered with stars and supported by Shu. She was the mother of Osiris, Horus, Isis, Set, and Nephthys. Her arms and legs were imagined to be the pillars of the sky, and hands and feet were thought to touch the four cardinal points at the horizon. She was also described as a cow goddess, taking on some of the attributes of Hathor.
