Bast Cartouche Necklace

Inspired by the Goddess Bast (Bastet) of ancient Egypt! She began as the warlike lioness protector of Lower Egypt, but later became the more familiar house cat and protector of the home. Cats were sacred to her and many pets were mummified and placed in her care after death. She was also a Goddess of fertility, sex, and safe travel.

Cat’s Protection I and II

In mythology and folklore, cats are often powerful, playful, and sensual—powerful protectors of those they love and fierce enemies to those who forget that cats have fangs and claws. In ancient Egypt, cat and lioness goddesses were among some of the most beloved and fearsome and housecats were thought to protect homes and families. In Norse mythology, the Vanic deity Freyja (Freya), whose domains were love, sex, and war, was drawn in a wain pulled by sacred cats.
