The Egyptian Cat Goddess Bast has a lusty history. When the annual pilgrimage to her shine took place, barges of celebrating women traveled up and down the Nile, flashing the people who came to observe them. Bast blesses not only cats, but also life, love, pleasure, fertility and the fruits of the earth. Playful joyous Bast exudes confidence and sensuality. This statue is from the collection of Theresa Mannino.

Bast products are available as an 8x10 framed image, candle, T-shirt and greeting card.
