    Bastet is the Goddess of Music, a mother Goddess. Her warrior form, Bast (or Sehkmet in Northern Egypt), is the protector, often depicted as with the head of a lion instead of a cat. The statue you picture, is of Bastet in her form of dancer and lover of music more than protection.

      Thanks for the feedback.
      Before I started working on Bastet I did some research and found that the gods had different roles depending on the era. In one era Bastet was goddess of one thing and in a later era she was goddess of something else. So I just picked one that sounded powerful and stuck with it.
