In her earliest forms, the cat goddess Bastet was represented as a woman with the head of a lion or a wild cat. She took the less ferocious form of a domestic cat in the first millennium BCE.
In later periods she was often represented as a regal-looking seated cat, sometimes wearing rings in her ears or nose. In the Ptolemaic period she came to be associated with the Greek goddess Artemis. the divine hunter and goddess of the moon.
I was very happy with my purchase from Orakei Objet. As the purchase was sent to me, I totally relied on their honesty. It was exactly as described and photographed on their Website. They are thoroughly professional in their dealings. It was packed very well and delivered quickly. I would be very happy to buy again. Many thanks. Gary
