If you've ever looked into Egyptian mythology, you've likely come across Bastet, sometimes called Bast. Bastet is most commonly known as the cat goddess, as she is often depicted with the head of a house cat. However, her feline form is only one of her many intriguing aspects. Bastet was known for her gentleness as the protector of women and the home. Yet she could also be ferocious when punishing those who harmed others and created disorder in society. She was prominently featured in myths and was considered one of the most powerful figures in the ancient Egyptian pantheon. Due to her immense popularity, she was often depicted in Egyptian art. She was also the subject of a riotous festival that attracted thousands of worshippers to the ancient city of Bubastis every year.
