ANCIENT EGYPTIAN ANTIQUES BASTET STATUE CAT EGYPT GODDESS STONE

You are now in front of very distinctive and rare piece which is Statue of BASTET she was the Egyptian Goddess of the home, domesticity, women's secrets, cats, fertility, and childbirth. She protected the home from evil spirits and disease, especially diseases associated with women and children. As with many Egyptian deities, she also played a role in the afterlife as a guide and helper to the dead although this was not one of her primary duties. She was the daughter of the sun god Ra and is associated with the concept of the Eye of Ra (the all-seeing eye) and the Distant Goddess (a female deity who leaves Ra and returns to bring transfromation). 
MEANING OF BASTET'S NAME: Her Name was Originally B'SST which became Ubaste, Then Bast, Then Bastet; the meaning of this name is not known or, at least, not universally agreed upon. Geraldine Pinch claims that "her name probably means She of the Ointment Jar" as she was associated with protection and protective ointments (115). The Greeks associated her closely with their goddess Artemis and believed that, as Artemis had a twin brother (Apollo) so should Bast. They associated Apollo with Horus, the son of Isis (Heru-sa-Aset) and so called the goddess known as Bast ba'Aset (Soul of Isis) which would be the literal translation of her name with the addition of the second 'T' to denote the feminine (Aset being among the Egyptian names for Isis),And as you can see protected with Goddess Hathor she was one of the most famous ancient Egyptian deities, as she is the goddess of goodness, beauty, motherhood, the goddess of wine, wine, music, and singing among the ancient Egyptians. Once she is at home or work, she brings to her owner or her beauty and goodness and motherhood she protects the home, work and human relations and she receives the dead in the other world where the ancient Egyptians believe Another world after death. Queen Hathor or Hator appears in more than one form, including the shape of the cow, on top of which is the sun disk, which means the soul and indicates that it inhabits the soul of the falcon of the sky.
