Nut with outstretched wings?
« on: August 09, 2012, 09:34:28 pm »
So just a couple of days after Wep Ronpet, I visited the Milwaukee Art Museum with family and came across the sarcophagus of Pedurisi. The pectoral image was this:

with text describing the winged goddess as Nut (ironic, huh? only Egyptian artifact in the whole place). Now, She does have Akhu stars below Her image. But she's holding a couple of very Ma'at-ish feathers in her hands.

Anyone familiar with a winged Nut?

Actually there's a sarcophagus in the museum of fine arts houston that has nut on it that looks similar and it was dated from the late period I think. *is going off memory from my April visit*  Maybe it has to do from the time period?  I think I'll let our more scholarly peeps take this one.

I think I've seen a winged Nut in :"The Complete Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt" by Richard Wilkinson.

Nut can be depicted winged--with no headdress (this can be Aset too).  I image Nut can also be depicted winged with Her own headdress too.  

Nut can also be depicted as a naked woman as the sky, in bovine form with a horned headdress with sundisk (and I think two plumes) and as a woman with a pot on her head.

Nut is often displayes as winged on sarcophagi, usually with Her name in the solar disk headdress.
Like  here in the British Museum.
