Cat Goddess Stamps/ Ceramic Sculpture With Earth Paints

Empire of Amphora
by Eric Whollem
edition of 100, plus artist's proofs

This stamp from the Empire of Amphora depicts
Bastus, or Bast, the cat goddess of ancient Egypt.
This whimsical rendition relates to the styles of art
seen in the ceramic folk art of the Mediterranean,
of Sardinia and elsewhere.

This ceramic sculpture was painted with natural
earth pigments, gathered in the Feather Falls area
of Butte County, California. It is one of many such
figurines that I have created over the years.
