Bastet | Louvre Museum | Paris This elegant bronze statuette, an image of the goddess Bastet, combines the body of a woman in a close-fitting dress with the delightful head of a little cat with pricked ears. She holds a sistrum, a lion-headed aegis, and a basket. This is one of the very many figurines that were made during the Late Period and placed by the faithful as ex-votos in the goddess’s temples.
