Bastet's Bounty, 135cm Onyx, Silk/Wool
Gifts from the Gods is a collection by Sabina Savage inspired by Ancient Egypt.
In this design which features her own pet cat the story is that "Regal in her posture, the young feline is positioned atop a carved pedestal. As the townsfolk notice her, they appear to melt into her piercing green gaze. She is Bastet, kind protector, fearsome huntress. They bring gifts of jewelry, riches and fruit, she will defend women and children she will ward off evil spirits" .
The hieroglyphics on this piece translate as: "Bastet, goddess of women, fearsome huntress. Protector of cats and secrets, defender of the Sun god, fighter of Apep."
