Marie by chibi-schnurri Marie by chibi-schnurri
No, as you can tell from the title, it's not Bastet, although she resembles her a lot. The girl on the picture is Marie Schärer, the female main character of one of my favorite books called "Die Wanderhure" (english: The traveling whore) written by german author Iny Lorentz.

Marie is a beautiful girl with long blonde hair, light blue eyes and fair skin. She is supposed to marry a rich man she doesn't even know. She also doesn't know his intentions are different - he doesn't want to marry her, he wants to get rid of her and her father to get their fortune.
He does so by accusing the young virgin girl of harlotry as she was supposed to be a virgin (which she is, like I said, he wants to get rid of her). Marie gets imprisoned and raped by his men, beadle Hunold, wagoner Utz and scrivener Linhard. The next day, she gets whipped in front of the crowd and thrown out of town.

She's found by a prostitute who takes her under her wing and teaches her how to earn money as a whore in order to survive. Marie actually despises a life like that, but the grudge and hate in her heart longs for revenge. All she wants is to make those who did this crime to her pay, and she has no choice but selling her body in order to reach her aim.

Her pose is referenced from a Snow White (Disney) picture, only the dress and her face is (c) moi.

Yes, one of the saddest fiction stories I've ever read.

I don't know, you'll have to look for it somewhere in your book stores or on the internet. It must be something like "The Traveling Whore" in english... or just google the author, she's called Iny Lorentz ;)

I've seen the trailer, and of course, they changed some facts... for example, Marie's not blonde, or the actress who plays her is 34, meaning twice as old as Marie in the book... or Ruppertus (her rich husband-to-be) lets her get raped and thrown out of town because of anger and jealousy, not because of wanting her fortune like in the book... I already dislike it... -.-

I don't know if it's released in the US (I guess that's where you live) yet, but in Germany, it's known under the title "Die Wanderhure", in english, it must be something like "The Traveling Whore"... or you could just google the author, Iny Lorentz. Maybe you find any information about where to buy an english adaption.

It's not based on a true story, but we all know such bastards did this to poor helpless women... and you're right, it's still happening.

I didn't figure it was based in a true story. I don't think I could stomach a story like that if it was actual accounts of what happened to someone.

I know, I hate it when men are being so cruel... real men don't rape!

I know, the dress kinda resembles the one Odette was wearing ^^
