A handmade hanging decoration in the shape of an ancient Egyptian cat statue.

The design represents the Gayer-Anderson cat - a famous ancient Egyptian sculpture in the British Museum. The sculpture is probably a representation of the cat-goddess Bastet, who was viewed as the daughter of the sun god and as a protector of mothers.

This decoration, featuring beadwork and metallic thread, is hand- embroidered in India by skilled local artisans. It is a collaboration piece between the British Museum and the design studio Poonam's House.
