Nut, belonging to the Heliopolitan Ennead was the mistress of all heavenly bodies and was thought to be reaching across the sky from horizon to horizon, touching them with her hands and feet. She was seen as the mother of Re, who swallowed him up every evening and gave birth to him again every morning. She was thus connected to resurrection and the tomb. The coffin, decorated with stars, was seen as the heavens, i.e. Nut herself in whose body the deceased rested until he awoke to new life.
