This is my contribution to the collaboration “Egypt – Land of Mystery”.
It was a great honor to be among all those amazing artists and their creations.
The ancient Egyptian Goddess Anuket (also known as Anket, Anqet, Anjet or Anukis) was a personification of the Nile as “Nourisher of the Fields”. She was also a goddess of the hunt and was worshipped as a protective deity during childbirth.
Anuket was generally depicted as a woman wearing a tall headdress made either of reeds or of ostrich feathers, often holding a sceptre and the ankh symbol, but was occasionally shown in the form of a gazelle.
