Egyptian Cats - Black - Hand Made in Gypsum Plaster
Sacred to the ancient Egyptians, cats were the special attribute of the goddess Bast (Bastet) and were originally depicted as a fiercely protective lion, but this image softened over the years to be portrayed more as a domestic cat.
Bastet was often depicted as having the body of a woman and the head of a domestic cat. She was associated with the Eye of Ra, acting within the sun god's power.
The Egyptians loved Bastet so much that she became a household goddess and protector of women, children and domestic cats. She was also the goddess of sunrise, music, dance, pleasure, as well as family, fertility and birth.
