Created exclusively for the British Museum: a handmade sterling silver necklace with an Egyptian Cat pendant.

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

The necklace has been created by Ortak - specialist jewellers based in the Orkney Islands, Scotland - using traditional silversmithing techniques. It forms part of an exclusive range based on masterpieces of the British Museum collections.

Ideal as a gift.
