Shu the Egyptian God of air, was the male half of the first divine couple. Shu was created when the supreme god Ra, spat or sneezed him out of his mouth. His consort was Tefnut, Goddess of moisture, who was created, in the same fashion. Father of Geb, the earth, and Nut, the sky, he separated his two children by pushing Nut upwards with his arms. He is often depicted as supporting the sky.
