<p>Inspired by statuettes of cats offered to the Ancient Egyptian goddess Bastet, who was said to appear on earth in the form of a cat. The Ancient Egyptians believed all their deities took animal form to appear on earth and considered the cat to be the most sacred of all. Offerings were made, as thanks for blessings, to Bastet at temples dedicated to this deity around Bubastis in the Egyptian Nile Delta.</p>

Exclusive to the British Museum, a pair of gold-plated stud earrings inspired by ancient Egyptian temple cat statues.

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 pretty gift for a cat lover.
