Nefertum

Nefertum is one of the ten Sun goddesses illustrated by Canadian artist Sara Golish for her Sundust series (which you can take a look at here). This series is a project centered around the theme of the Summer solstice (June 21), a date celebrated in many cultures. Here, the artist focuses on Africa, and the striking lack of female sun-deities there. She depicts ten female sun goddesses as a response to this ; and as a vision of the future embodying fertility and light.

This collection is amazing, and you can buy the prints on Golish’s website (over here). Make sure you also look at the rest of her work and stay in touch for updates because I’m following her progress.
