A resin ornament celebrating the ancient Egyptian cat goddess Bastet. 

Sacred to the ancient Egyptians, cats were particularly important to the goddess Bast (Bastet). She was often depicted as having the body of a woman and the head of a cat. Bastet was so highly regarded by the Egyptians that she became a household goddess as the protector of women, children and domestic cats. She was also the goddess of sunrise, music, dance and pleasure as well as family, fertility and birth.

A charming gift for cat lovers and Egyptologists.
