Bastet was the Egyptian goddess of cats. Egyptian gods and goddesses closely resembled the appearance of humans, but many of their gods, such as Bastet (Bast) were also perceived as 'human hybrids' depicted with human bodies with the heads of animals. These symbols were used as a recognition aid and a device to visually convey the powers, identity, and attributes of the deity. In the Book of the Dead, she is mentioned as destroying the bodies of the deceased, with the royal flame, if they failed the judgment hall of Maat.
