    This is the Goddess Nephthys

    Nephthys was the Goddess of death & service.

    She is the  daughter of Nut and Geb. Nephthys was typically paired with her sister Isis in funerary rites because of their role as protectors of the mummy and the god Osiris and as the sister-wife of Set.  Nephthys plays an important role in the Osirian myth-cycle. It is Nephthys who assists Isis in gathering and mourning the dismembered portions of the body of Osiris, after his murder by the envious Set. Nephthys also serves as the nursemaid and watchful guardian of the infant Horus.

    Nephthys is also the mother of  Anubis.

    This is the God Shu

    Shu is the God of the Wind & Air

    He was the firs son created by Ra, the husband of the goddess Tefnut and father of Nut & Geb

    As the air, Shu was considered to be cooling, and thus calming, influence, and pacifier. Due to the association with air, calm, and thus Ma’at (truth, justice and order), Shu was portrayed in art as wearing an ostrich feather. Shu was seen with between one and four feathers. The ostrich feather was symbolic of light and emptiness. Fog and clouds were also Shu’s elements and they were often called his bones. Because of his position between the sky and earth, he was also known as the wind.

    This is the Goddess Tefnut

    Tefnut is the goddess of Rain & Water

    She was the first daughter of Ra and his second child, she is married to her brother Shu and has two children with him Nut & Geb. When Tefnut is pictured as a lioness she looks very similar to her sister Sekhmet she can be distinguished from her by looking at the ears, Tefnut’s ears are more pointed where Sekhmet’s is more rounded. Tefnut is a leonine deity, and appears as human with a lioness head when depicted as part of the Great Ennead of Heliopolis. The other frequent depiction is as a lioness, but Tefnut can also be depicted as fully human. In her fully or semi anthropomorphic form.

    I made Tefnut in both her forms, which one do you think is best ?

    This is the God Geb

    Geb was The God Of Earth

    He was the husband of Nut and father to Osiris, Set, Isis & Nephthys

    It was believed in ancient Egypt that Geb’s laughter were earthquakes and that he allowed crops to grow.

    Note : I have changed Geb’s image more so than the others because in most pictures of him like the one below he is laying across the ground staring up at Nut, I found this hard to do so changed it to him standing upright.

    This is the God Hapi

    Hapi was the god of the annual flooding of the Nile
    (not god of the Nile)

    The annual flooding of the Nile occasionally was said to be the Arrival of Hapi. Since this flooding provided fertile soil in an area that was otherwise desert. Due to his fertile nature he was sometimes considered the “father of the gods”, and was considered to be a caring father who helped to maintain the balance of the cosmos, the world or universe regarded as an orderly, harmonious system. He was thought to live within a cavern at the supposed source of the Nile near Aswan.

    Hapi is also a son of Ra

    This is the God Khonsu

    Khonsu was the god of the Moon

    His name reflects the fact that the Moon (referred to as Iah in Egyptian) travels across the night sky, for it means “traveller”, and also had the titles “Embracer”, “Pathfinder”, and “Defender”, as he was thought to watch overnight travelers. As the god of light in the night, Khonsu was invoked to protect against wild animals, increase male virility, and aid with healing. It was said that when Khonsu caused the crescent moon to shine, women conceived, cattle became fertile, and all nostrils and every throat was filled with fresh air.

    Khonsu was the son of Bastet and grandson of Ra

    Nice shading on these last two ones. It really brings the designs to life.  The outfits are also nice, and the black on Isis’s wings is really eye-catching. You’ve made some great progress, keep it up!
