Bast’s new icon arrives!

Posted in Festivals, GodBling at 7:59 pm by

 
My new state icon has arrived — right on Onion Day! I’m so excited.

Some pictures:

 
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!

    That is a gorgeous sculpture. Perhaps now that your statue has arrived, the one I commissioned won’t be far behind? The clay model: http://www.joanannlansberry.com/other/Set%20clay1.jpg

    That’s absolutely stunning, Shefyt. Wow. Dua Bast, a thousand times!

    Yours as well Joan. I do hope you’ll post the final sculpture somewhere. So much love for both of these gods. You both have found an amazing artist, and obviously put a great deal of thought into the sculptures themselves. <3
