A handmade decoration shaped as the Gayer-Anderson Cat statue.

This decoration, featuring beadwork and metallic thread is hand-embroidered in India by skilled local artisans.

The Gayer-Anderson Cat is a sacred temple cat sculpture from the Late Period of ancient Egypt. The regal and highly decorated bronze statue wears gold earrings and a gold nose ring. Her silver breastplate is decorated with the sacred eye of the god Horus, beneath which is an ornamental scarab and silvered disc. The cat represents the goddess Bastet and is named after Major Robert Grenville Gayer-Anderson who donated the cat to the British Museum in 1939. Cats were highly revered in ancient Egypt and were often found in temples as Bastet’s representative.

A wonderful history-inspired gift.
