Egyptian Adventures: The Goddess 1.

22 Aug 2012

Bastet was viewed as the protector goddess of Lower Egypt. As protector, she was seen as defender of the pharaoh. She was usually represented as a woman with the head of a domesticated cat and was the goddess of fire, cats, of the home and pregnant women.
Her center of worship was in Bubastis (Per-Bast, Pa-Bast, Pibeseth, Tell-Basta), in the eastern Delta, where more than 300,000 mummified cats were discovered when a temple dedicated to her was excavated.
