Egyptian Cat Black (Small) - Gypsum Plaster - Hand made in the UK

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.
