Geb and Nut

Geb and Nut

Geb and Nut are Egyptian gods of earth and sky respectively. Generally the sky gods are male principle and earth is the mother god. But the roles are reversed here and it shows that this myth is more ancient than any other myth which depicts sky god as male principle. (Earliest societies were matriarchal). The relevance of this myth here is that the “Kalan” is the earliest sky god of India (Indus People) and he takes a hovering position over mother earth as depicted in the picture. The calibration of astronomical position of star constellations were made by depicting various body parts of Kalan to that of constellation as shown in the figure of Kalan. Further details are under the heading jyotish wheel, under the chapter “Astronomy and calendar”.
