In Egyptian mythology, Bastet is an ancient solar and war goddess, worshipped at least since the Second Dynasty.
Bast or Bastet was the cat goddess and local deity of the town of Bubastis or Per-Bast in Egyptian, where her cult was centered. Bubastis was named after her. Originally she was viewed as the protector goddess of Lower Egypt, and consequently depicted as a fierce lioness. Indeed, her name means (female) devourer. As protector, she was seen as defender of the pharaoh, and consequently of the later chief male deity, Ra, who was a solar deity also, gaining her the titles Lady of Flame and Eye of Ra.

I saw your avatar and realized it was an egyptian woman...that is why I was drawn to your work!

I am a big Ancient Egypt guru. ^^ I love reading about the egyptain deities and I like drawing them.
Your Bastet is very different from the way I imagine her. I find it interesting how different people have different takes on characters. She is very lovely. I like her headress, the curtains, and the golden heiroglyphs in the background. Nicely done ^^
