Bast or Bastet Pendant | 925 Sterling Silver
All Cats were sacred in Ancient Egypt. In the beginning Sekhmet, the war like face of Hathor, but in the New Kingdom a freindlier face appeared, more like a house cat as displayed here. As Bast or Bastet she became the Egyptian goddess of the home, domesticity, women's secrets, cats, fertility, and childbirth. She protected the home from evil spirits and disease, especially diseases associated with women and children.
