Mut is the great mother goddess of EgyptShe is said to be the consort of Amun, and their son is the moon-god Khonsu.
She is a protecting goddess when she is dressed as a vulture and dangerous when she is represented with a lioness head.
(The word "mother" "mwt" in ancient Egyptian also meant vulture).

Beautiful work!

However, mwt doesn't mean "vulture." The terms A (which can also denote "a bird in general"), As (for a bald-headed vulture), and nrt mean "vulture."

The confusion comes from an outdated argument about the origins of the cult of Mut-as-distinct-Goddess-rather-than-title-of-many-Goddesses (a cultic phenomenon which does not appear before Dynasties 18 and 19) and a direct relation to/"emergence from" Nekhbet -- none of which have any basis in Afro-Asiatic linguistic or indeed historical cultic realities. 

The term mwt is often SPELLED with a vulture-sign, G14 -- this is a phonetic value only, however. The term mwt may ALSO be represented by other phonetic values, e.g. D52 (phallus sign, with the phonetic value of mw) + X1 (loaf, phonetic value t) with B1 (seated woman) appending the two as a determinative.

Absolutely gorgeous, good balance and creative use of relatively few colours, and the feathers, bird-crown, and sun-disk are wonderful. The golden eyes fit her so well. The dark dress makes for a good contrast with the light.

Is it me, or do your gods and goddesses get better with every new entry made? (Hint: I don't think it's just me).
Lovely art of yours. Probably my favorite so far.
