The Egyptians shared their environment with many different beasts, birds, fish and reptiles. These animals would appear on many objects including sculptures, jewellery and hieroglyphics. These animals were thought of as part of the ‘world system’ made by the sun god, and as earthly versions of many gods.
The cat was sacred to the Egyptian goddess of love, fertility and joy, Bast or Bastet.
This Egyptian Cat pendant is made from lead-free pewter and is supplied on a waxed cord. The information card is full colour on the front and has historical information on the reverse.
