Egyptian Cat umbrella (British Museum exclusive)

    SKU: cmcv48080

    £18.99 Members' price *


    An umbrella featuring an Egyptian cat and hieroglyphs design.

    The design is inspired by the Gayer-Anderson cat: an ancient Egyptian cat sculpture in the British Museum. The sculpture is probably a representation of the cat-goddess Bastet, whom the ancient Egyptians viewed as the daughter of the sun god and as a protector of mothers. .

    The umbrella has been designed exclusively for the British Museum. It is supplied with a protective slip in the same design.
