Ancient Egyptian Gods - Pe

Pe Pe
Pe is the deity of heaven. She is sometimes represented under the form of hieroglyphic character signifying the heavens studded with stars; and sometimes as a human figure whose body, as it bends forward with outspread arms, appears to overshadow the earth and encompass it, in imitation of the vault of heaven reaching from one side of the horizon to the other. In this posture she encloses the zodiacs.
