My new state icon has arrived — right on Onion Day! I’m so excited.
These are the three different icons that have been used in my state shrine over the years. The first was the black-and-gold Summit Collection Bast on the left — just resin, and not the lion-Bast that I usually “get,” but this was a good icon for me. On the right is the bronze that I’ve been using lately. It’s a copy of the Bast from my set of Seven Arrows. Lovely, but a little too small. The new one is in the center, striking the balance betwen them.
Here She is in close up.
And a clearer view, taken by the foundry.
She was created by Lena Toritch of Young Fine Art Studio in Salt Lake City. I can definitely recommend Lena’s work!
Dua Bast — nekhtet!
