Bastet Bucket Hat
After critical observation of the cat, the Ancient Egyptians noted that the feline naturally didn’t like snakes.
A snake was known to have two roles. It was either the serpent of intelligence; or, it was considered the serpent of darkness.
Bastet was known to protect ones intellect from the serpent of darkness. You can find many mummified cats, along with many sculptures of cats, all throughout many of the Pharoh’s tombs.
