Nut and Geb: The two were originally locked in a close embrace according to the Egyptian belief. This scene here is from the papyrus of Tamenhill (c 1000 BC) now in the British Museum. It shows Nut (the vault of heaven) arched over her brother (the earth god) Geb.
“It is interesting to note that the Egyptian cosmogeny differs from most others in making the eath male and the sky female. One remarkable feature of the ancient Egyptian creation myths is that they show no concern whatsoever to explain the origin of mankind.”
