A sky cow who is the goddess that supports the sky in ancient Egyptian mythology. She is seen sometimes as a woman stretching her body to support the heavens. At other times she is seen as a cow whose four legs are the pillars of heaven and the four corners of the world. The Egyptian sky god Ra after spending enough time ruling the Egyptian people, left his sky boat and mounted Nuit instead. She is the daughter of the air god Shu and the goddess of moisture, Tefnut.
