“Primordial Night – Nut and Nyx”

Mixed Media on canvas – 2008

Primordial Night – to the Greeks she was Nyx. Born from Chaos she was the mother of Sleep, Dream, and Death… To The Egyptians she was Nut – the arching star studded sky above. Every night she swallowed the sun, nurturing it in her womb, and giving birth to the new day. Her sky body created the atmosphere, and held off chaos. The night can bring calm, peace; a welcome velvety tranquil darkness.
