Bast...Handmade Leather Mask by merimask Bast...Handmade Leather Mask by merimask
This is Bast. Egyptian goddess of dancing, music and fertility. Two of those things are great at parties...

Like everything I do, this mask is hand-carved and shaped from one piece of leather. I don't use any molds or forms, so each one is an original sculpture. Painted with Liquitex acrylics in black, gold and just a touch of royal blue inside the ears (to simulate lapis lazuli inlay).

This mask is available now (and frequently) at my online Etsy shop: [link]

Bast is also the Protector of Women, Guardian of the Home/Hearth and she bears the Eye of Ra.

It's perfect. Egypt always had this elegant charm, that shows in the simplest ways like this mask.
