Dyaus Pita by Teu-Kelytha Dyaus Pita by Teu-Kelytha
In the Vedic religion Dyauṣ Pitar is the Sky Father, husband of Mata Prithvi (Earth Mother) and father of Agni and Indra (who in some accounts kills him).

Derivatives can be found in the Proto-Indo-European sky god Dyeus, who appears in Greek as Zeus patēr (accusative Día, genitive Diós), in Latin as Jupiter (from archaic Latin Iove pater, "Sky father"), in Slavic mythology as Div, and Germanic and Norse mythology as Thor or Tyr or Ziu.

In art, he appears in two different forms: as a red bull who bellows thunder, or as a black horse adorned with pearls, symbolizing the stars.
