Antique Hand Carved Solid Stone Sculpture Egyptian Goddess Bast Statue Bastet
This beautiful hand carved sculpture of the Ancient Egyptian Cat Goddess Bastet was exquisitely handcarved in breathtaking detail. This stunning sculpture is simply remarkable with its lifelike accuracy and cunning details. Carved from a piece of solid Egyptian granite, one side of the statue is oxidizing into a rust color. This is caused by a chemical reaction to the iron oxide within the stone, itself. Quartz and quartzite both contain iron oxide and granite contains quartz, so I believe the stone used for the sculpture is granite. It is an extremely unique piece, due to the chemical reaction occuring in the stone unfolding before your very eyes. A magnificent piece and testament to Egypt’s ancient culture whose traditional roots have endured throughout the ages. Statue is old and, though solid stone, rather fragile due to the age of the piece. The stone has become brittle over time & stone may contain some hairline fractures and inclusions. Height from base to tip reaches just over 8 cm {3 inches}. Width is 2.5 cm at the base {1 inch}. Antique means 80+ years and does NOT require provenance, as it is not an original artifact stolen from a country’s national treasures.
