Images of Bast
« on: April 30, 2019, 07:35:57 pm »
Em Hotep, everyone!

I was wondering if someone could link me or send me pictures of Bast from temple walls, tombs or papyrus. All I can find on google is only modern images or statues of Her.

I'm still digging around, but this issue of the OIP has some images of Bast in it.

Em hotep! Here are a few things I tracked down quickly:

Sundry pieces from the Metropolitan Museum in New York:!?q=Bastet&perPage=20&searchField=All&showOnly=withImage&sortBy=Relevance&offset=0&pageSize=0

Online copy of Naville's Bubastis (if you scroll all the way to the end, there are some Bast drawings in among the other reproductions of temple art):

Photo from Tell Basta (about half way down):

You might have better success if you go to specific museums' websites and search there.

Also, the vast majority of ancient Bast images I've found are votive items like amulets, statues, and stelae; I haven't seen much in the way of paintings. So if you're looking for that in particular, it's going to be harder.
