Portraits of Nit and Nut
It started with the silhouette design for a base for a relief of Nit.
I traced around the outside of the silhouette.
I did likewise for Nut,
tracing around the outside of the silhouette.
I next worked on coloring them, and making sure they looked well together:
Julia had a special request for this art work. They are the decan of the 'jaws' of Taurus, the 'jaws' being 'A'aryt' in Ancient Egyptian, (Source: _The Ancient Egyptian Daybook_, by Tamara L. Siuda, page 319) These stars were the stars rising at the moment of Julia's birth.
This is the sky as it looked at the minute of Julia's birth,
the stars are elevated four degrees above the horizon.
