Artist's Description

Oil on Canvas – 35cm x 45cm – SOLD

Nuit is the Egyptian Sky Goddess often made of stars. Her priestesses were known to bodily invoke the Goddess in all Her glory. According to the ancient texts, during the erotic dance ritual the priestesses would achieve states of gnosis and communion with the Divine in which great truths were revealed.

She is akin to High Priestess tarot card, especially the half moon at the crown and pillar quality of the veils. The stars signify the tantric energies rising in the base, releasing at the crown and balancing at the heart.

Many thanks to my model, a Tribal Fusion dance instructor, for being the ultimate muse and a truly inspiring, modern day Priestess of Nuit!
