Image of Shu from wikimedia

Shu, the god of space and light, is seen here with a crown of feathers. His name means dry or parched and his skin is red like the desert.

He had power over snakes, the clouds were his bones, and he held the ladder by which deceased souls ascended to heaven.

Shu was the father of Nut and Geb. The image below shows him supporting his sky daughter over his head while his earthbound son lies below.
