"Votive Head Of Goddess Bastet"
Egypt, Low Period. // When Re governed Egypt, his eye (the Oudjat eye) left the palace one day in a moment of anger, to reach Nubia. He took on the appearance of a bloodthirsty lioness, wild and destructive goddess, Sekhmet, "The Faraway". It massacred the men who fled to the desert and took a liking to it. Re decided to stop the carnage, but as his daughter (Sekhmet) was out of control, he ordered Shou and Thoth to return her. They used a stratagem: in the form of monkeys, they poured into the Nile, close to elephantine, seven thousand jugs of beer mixed with a blushing dye. Sekhmet, believing to discover a river of blood, became drunk with this drink and fell asleep. When she awoke, she appeared as a soothed cat, Bastet. Its main place of worship was in Bubastis; others were at Memphis, Thebes, Heliopolis, Leontopolis, and Herakleopolis.
