Bastet

Bastet

Bastet (also spelled Ubasti, Bast or Pasht) was an ancient feline Egyptian goddess of war. She was highly revered, especially in the lower parts of Egypt. Originally she had been depicted as a lioness, but later generations turned her image into that of a domestic cat :).

This is my very first attempt at painting an artist card. With oil pastels it is a quite difficult thing to get details done while working on such a small size (2,5″ x 3,5″). Nevertheless I had much fun doing it.
