Bast by tonyperna Bast by tonyperna
Here is a Collectors Proof sketch card of Bast that I drew for the LEGENDS & LORE card set. Sketch card measures 2.5" x 3.5".

This is a Collectors Proof from the set. Every Legends & Lore card set came with one already drawn on sketch card and a blank collectors proof sketch card to be commissioned and drawn on. A Collectors Proof is the blank card that comes with a set.

Bast (also spelled Ubasti or Baset) – Daughter of Ra. Bast was the cat goddess and local deity of the town of Bubastis (Per-Bast in Egyptian), where her cult was centered Bubastis was named after her. Originally she was viewed as the protector goddess of Lower Egypt, and consequently depicted as a fierce lioness. Indeed, her name means (female) devourer. As protector, she was seen as defender of the pharaoh, and consequently of the later chief male deity, Ra, who was also a solar deity, gaining her the titles Lady of Flame and Eye of Ra.

PLEASE, NEGATIVE CRITIQUES ARE NOT WELCOME AND WILL BE DELETED. THESE ARE MY INTREPRETATIONS OF THESE CHARACTERS. DESCRIPTIONS ARE BASED ON VARIOUS STORIES THAT ALL DIFFER FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. THANK YOU.

The original art does not have the Perna Studios watermark on it.
