    About

    Exclusive to the British Museum: a metal bookmark inspired by the Gayer-Anderson cat - a famous ancient Egyptian sculpture in the British Museum.

    The sculpture is probably a representation of the cat- goddess Bastet. The ancient Egyptians viewed Bastet as the daughter of the sun god and as a protector of mothers.

    Ideal as a small gift, the bookmark comes in a presentation case with historical information about the piece.
