This is Bast, the Egyptian cat goddess. She protects me.

Cats were loved in ancient times since they could not only defeat the poisonous serpent but also eat up all the mice that would otherwise devour the harvests of the Nile. They were dressed in jewellery (hence the golden ring often represented in Bast's ear) and ate from the same plate as their owners. Sometimes Bast is half-human and might hold a wand, but I prefer the more domestic cat representation I have here. My mum got me this at the British Museum.

And, yeah, her festival was one of much drunkenness. No wonder she likes me.

Native American Regalia. Chief Osceola rides Renegade onto the field. The costume is designed by Seminole women of the Florida Seminole tribe. The Seminole tribe has been closely involved in The FSU mascot tradition. That's why it persists in this era of P.C.

rparmar - Bast is fabulous, very nicely photographed!


This is a sculpture by Tom Nussbaum, from the first roll of film (Delta 100) through my new Ikomat 520 6x4.5 folder. It was nearing sunset and a storm was coming on, light was fading fast - I think I shot this at f/5.6 and 1/50. Camera was made in 1933 by Zeiss Ikon, and has a 70mm Tessar in a Compur shutter.
