↳ [4/14]   G E B

On the orders of Ra, Nut and Geb were separated by Shu who stood on Geb and lifted Nut high up above him separating him from his sister. Geb still longed for his sister, and was often depicted lying prone with his erect phallus pointing towards her body. He wept when he was separated from her, and so created the oceans of the world.
