Bastet $20.00

“Bastet”, or “Bast”, was a most popular goddess of ancient Egypt. She was a cat-headed deity. The domestic cat was revered in Ancient Egypt because of it’s mysterious nature and affinity for it’s human owners. One of the largest, most joyous and elaborate festivals was held in honor of Bastet in the city of Bubastis. It is estimated that 700,000 people attended this festival every year. Egyptologists uncovered catacombs of mummified felines in the ruins of the Temple of Bubastis. It was believed the mummies could bring messages to the gods from their owners. Bastet was called “The Divine Mother”. Her Greek counterpart was the Goddess Artemis, and Roman Goddess Diana. During the Middle Ages, the name Diana, came to mean “Queen of the Witches” and the cat became identified with witchcraft and goddess worship.

Our “Bastet” is represented with an Egyptian headdress and skirt adorned with Lotus Blossoms. The lotus is a symbol of The Great Goddess. On her arms she wears the serpents; the oldest symbol of female power. The spiral at her naval symbolizes the mysteries of death and rebirth. Her darkly adorned eye is symbol of the Utchat or all-seeing eye, named after the Goddess Maat, the mother of truth. An original Design by Linda Masselli


All our pendant are made from Excelsior Pewter (no lead) and comes with a 34" cord, accent bead and booklet.
