Bast Statue - Bast/Bastet is the Egyptian Goddess of cats, the home, fire, sunrise, music, dance, pleasure as well as sexuality, fertility, family, pregnant women, & children. She's believed to be the personification of the Soul of Isis. She's represented either as a woman with the head of a domesticated cat, a lioness (as goddess of sunlight), or as a desert sand-cat. She possesses the Utchat or Uraeus – the revered, All Seeing Eye of Ra & she uses it as an instrument for his vengeance. Like most Egyptian goddesses, two sides personify her: docile & aggressive. On her gentle side, she appears as a protector of homes & pregnant women. Her vicious nature shows during incredible battles when she is protecting the pharaoh, & here she takes the form of her twin sister (sometimes considered to be simply another aspect of herself), Sekhmet.
This statue stands at 5 & 1/2 inches tall.
