Bastet is the offspring of Ra, the sun god, she is known and worshipped for the protection from disease and pestilence. Cats were regarded by the Kem (ancient Egyptian peoples) as spiritual animals that protected temples and houses from possible diseases spread from rodents, also cats would quickly dispatch venomous snakes, consequently the Goddess "Bastet" was related to cats.
Each Bastet has been hand carved, from solid soapstone in Luxor, Egypt. Every Bastet comes with its own uniqueness, meaning no 2 are the same. She would make a wonder addition to any alter.
