Year In Pictures: 2010/12/13 - Bast

I read somewhere that Bast is the oldest known recorded name. I either read that in the Bathroom Reader, or somewhere on-line so I take it with a grain of salt. Regardless of its veracity, she fascinates me no less.

I have always been intrigued by ancient Egypt - it was my favourite section of history when I was in school, though I admit that my subconscious is likely over-glamorizing what was probably a pretty shitty time in which to live. In any event, there is nothing like a bit of harsh back-lighting and half-tone overlay to add a bit of mystery to a picture.
