Bastet Statue

RE000103

New product

Bastet, goddess female cat, is represented either in a feminine form with a head of female cat, standing with a small basket, holding an egide and a sistre and wearing a long richly decorated tunic, or in the form of a pussy, sitting with dignity wearing necklace and earring or lying down, sometimes nursing many kittens. She often wears a scarab on her head.

Lady of motherhood, mistress of the house, Bastet was originally a lioness goddess like Sekhmet or Ouadjet; around 900-600 B. C., she takes on the appearance of a female cat and becomes the sweet and soothed counterpart of the ferocious goddess. His cult then knew a great development (under the XXIInd dynasty) thanks to the Lybian rulers installed in his city of Bubastis (in the delta).

His temple is rebuilt and it is customary to bury many mummies of cats and to offer the goddess many small bronze statuettes with her effigy, all over Egypt.
