Shu Gets Some Help

What happens when Shu gets too tired to hold Nut up? He gets help from the Heh (eternity) spirits, so they hold him up! Cooperation in the spirit world. Our friend Nestanebtasheru sent us this drawing. [Photograph of image of Nut, Geb, Shu, and the Heh-spirits from Papyrus Greenfield. 21st Dynasty (ca. 950 BCE). Currently in the British Museum.] (tagged: Geb and Nut (pronounced "noot" to rhyme with "boot"), Shu)
