Bastet with Nefertum figure, sistrum, and basket

Third Intermediate Period–Late Period

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 134

Although the head, made separately, is now missing, this goddess is identifiable as Bastet. The striped robe is characteristic of the goddess, as are the sistrum and basket she holds. The small statuette with a lotus crown represents her son Nefertum.
