Nuit ~ Goddess of the Sky

NUIT, also known by various other transcriptions, is the goddess of the sky, stars, cosmos, mothers, astronomy, and the universe in the ancient Egyptian religion. Nuit’s primary duty is being the Egyptian sky goddess. However, because she was said to give birth to many of the major Egyptian gods, she was also referred to as “She who Bore the Gods”. Nuit's powers are those of strength and speed.

How she was made:

Nuit has been constructed entirely by using only wire and vegan feathers. The wire was manipulated into orb like shapes and attached to the handmade headband for support. The whole wire frame was tightly wrapped with tulle so the vegan feathers could be sewn onto it.

Each feather was made by hand using sinamay straw. After cutting the shapes and fraying the edges, they were manipulated further with heat to represent straw feathers. The feathers were added to the start and end of the orb frame leaving the rest clear and drawing the eye back to the starting point.

Nuit is a unique piece of art that will uplift any outfit ♥
