Bastet

Responsible For: Joy, Music, and Dancing! Also Health and Healing.

Bastet ( Bast, Ubasti )
Egyptian sun, cat and home goddess. As a sun goddess she represents the warm, life giving power of the sun. A goddess of the home, pregnant women and of the domestic cat, although she sometimes took on the war-like aspect of a lioness. She was also associated with 'Eye of Ra', as such she was a instrument of the sun god's vengeance.

I had this background painted for a while now but couldn't decide what I wanted to do with it. I'm glad I was finally inspired to do something with it.

Okay, I'm going to be honest, there's something about her face that just seems... strange/off to me. That said, I love everything else about it. Especially the cat. <3

This is so beautiful and I am sorry I missed it when you first submitted it.. Tonight I have been going through my devwatch and I am shocked at all the art I have missed out on from over a month ago. I suspect there is some error going on with my devwatch.. I comment and fav , then delete it and in a weeks time it returns and I am getting old work from months ago that Ive never seen before... Its so frustrating! Are you having any problems like this?

Man Bastet is gorgeous here! Like I said before, I'm a total Egypt junkie so it's always a treat to see an image done this well!

I will say though (and this is just some of my random trivia) the lion headed goddess was actually considered a seperate deity known as Sekmet. She was the more bloody warrioress associated with Ra.

And man do I ever have too much useless knowledge crammed in my head lol

Actually according to Wikipedia Sekmet and Bastet both were lion headed goddesses. You can read about it here if you would like.

We both have our heads filled with useless information.:rofl:
