CeraMicino© and LuMicino© versions The inspiration and the origins of the model Bianca Miao© ComputArte® Historical and mythological references : from Sekhmet to Bastet In ancient Egypt the Goddess Sekhmet was represented with the woman's body and with the head of a lioness. Her name meant "The Powerful" (derived from the Egyptian word "Sekhem" which means power) and symbolized the goddess of war but also the destructive force of evil things (in this sense also as "Lady of Life" as being able to donate healing and overcoming evil and illnesses). Bearer and ambassador of solar power (Ra) was a symbol of resistance, independence, energy, and affirmation. The myth was subject to evolution and appeared the Goddess Bastet: some sources put her beside to Sekhmet as her sister or twin, other sources tell a transformation of Goddess Sekhmet into Goddess Bastet. She was stylized in a woman's body with a cat's head and was the protector of cats and those who took care of cats. Bastet was a powerful Goddess, daughter of Ra, a symbol of femininity, sensitivity, and magic; she also protected children, love, fertility, family and home. Bastet's cult included rituals of purification and perfume associated with menstrual cycles and fertility. The cat was connected with magic practices, spiritual consciousness, and the power of sexuality, and was a symbol of sexual availability. Bastet's perfume would therefore be that of seduction. TEMPERAMENT: A real surrogate of the modern woman Like all the felines, she looks attractive and dangerous together, sweet and cruel and embodies what's most intimate and feminine is locked in the human being: Sensuality and sweetness, charm and generosity, love and passion, desire and pleasure, life that shines in all its fullness.. Bastet seduces and enchants, in her there are the solar masculine and the lunar feminine, the luminous power at all clear and the independent, mysterious, secret, feminine, lunar power. Bastet was the Lady of Love, Joy, Pleasure, Dance and Song, but also the one who embodied these aspects of independence, mysteriousness, fragility and beauty, so children and women. She was venerated and invoked by women to have fertility and then to protect their pregnancy.
