Long before plastic cat masks there must have been cat women around already or that's what they imply in the movie Catwoman. I guess she must have looked like this. I hope I'm historically accurate (Ha, probably not! )
I'm looking at the illustration on the wall and it reminds me of the humanoid twins on 'Into Darkness' the latest Star Trek film. Your main character is pretty hot too, but where's the tail? Cue the meowing
I am pretty sure this is exactly how a historical cat-woman would have looked like. [insert long sigh here...] Once the Mr Peabody movie comes out, hopefully they will put the time machine to good use and prove it. But if it meant proving this, I would be willing to accept proof from Professor Kitzel, or Max the 2000 year old mouse, or even Dr Who...
It seems like the first "catwoman" might have been Diana of Delos, who was known for being able to shape shift into a cat whenever she wanted. No wonder she has become one of the most popular deities of her time, and later adopted by the Romans. Diana (600 BC), precursor of the educated, intelligent, beautiful, and powerful woman, is still worshiped nowadays by the Romana Neopaganism and Stregheria religions.
