Bast was one of the most popular deities in all of Egypt. Cats of course were the most sacred of all animals to the Egyptians, but the black cat was particularly sacred to Bast. Several temples were dedicated to her, and each was home to countless cats which were treated as literal incarnations of the Goddess.
Bast was also the sister of Sekhmet. Together the twin sisters formed the "Yin Yang" of Egyptian religion, Bast, depicted as a young woman with the head of a domestic cat, being the positive force, and Sekhmet, shown with the head of a lioness, being the destructive force. For those of you who love wine; the white wine of Lower Egypt was the Wine of Bast, while the blood-red wine of Upper Egypt was called the Wine of Sekhmet.
