Bastet 07:45, Color, Mono, GB, EG, 2008

Site-specific video installation created in Alexandria, Egypt, during Dwayer International Female Artists Workshop. A beautifully laid table was left in the street for stray cats to enjoy – an offering to the once sacred animal.
Bastet was a cat-headed solar goddess and protector of women in ancient Egypt.
