This is stunning I have been a High priestess of Bastet for many many years now and I have to say that this is by far the most moving piece of art I have ever seen of my Goddess. I do not see a price listed so I am hoping that it is within my price range and if not that she is still there when I do raise the money. I had better sell my ass of with my Jewelry on etsy it looks like huh? btw found you through LJ and Nammaah Darling and friended you I hope you don't mind. From reading a bit about you here it seems we have a few things in common. Your work is stunning NEVER undervalue it.

I'm very sorry, the set of Anubis + Bast were a commission and sold some time ago, though prints are still available via DeviantArt. :) I'm glad you like this piece though.
