Indentifying the Bast

Couple of months ago I took pictures of my friend's Egyptian Cat statue... they're called Basts. Well my friend has one, and I took pictures of it so that it could be identified. Well... it turns out that it is a unique piece, made for Emperor Hadrian, probably for his friends to put in their temples in Rome. And the ROM is going to be using my photos for lecturing... Neat."
