The Mai have sent me our next clue.
According to the Nine Paths Prophecy, “As the Circle of Strangers’ knowledge of the Mai grows deeper, their dedication shall be tested and the dangers shall be greater. The Path to The Uniter promises to be full of risk, but from this risk comes incredible rewards.”
Let's prove we have what it takes eh?
They sent me a photo of a statue and information on the ways to find out what we're searching for.
What is the ancient Egyptian name for this statue?
I'm actually a mythology geek so I knew this was a statue of Bastet.
What very warm and bright star did ancient Egyptians originally connect to this statue?
I was pretty sure that the only possible 'warm and bright star' this could be is the Sun, which features heavily in Egyptian mythology.
What city in Egypt contained a "cult" that was dedicated to the Goddess connected to this statue?
Looking up Bastet via Google turned up a few useful results including more pictures of similar statuary as well as the Wikipedia page where I turned up the answer to this clue, Bubastis, a very fitting name.
Once we Circles have our answers we were told to search the three terms in YouTube to 'discover what this statue means to the Mai'.
Now here is that video to share with you!
Stay tuned by following me on Twitter watching for the #NinePaths and don't forget that you can play along at ABC Family's The Nine Paths to Chloe King page.
