Living In The World Of Ancient Mythology


Bastet, as a sun goddess was charged with protecting her  aged father, the powerful Sun God Ra. She rode with him through the sky during the day, but in the darkness of the night,  he was defenseless, so Bastet turned herself into a cat so that she could see into the dark a watch for Ra's enemy,  Apep, a snake that wanted to usurp Ra's throne.

Bastet's Appearance: She was a woman with a head of a cat.
