Exclusive to the British Museum, a miniature replica of an ancient Egyptian cat.

Made from English pewter, this replica is modelled from an original bronze handle mounting made c.644-30 BC, which is now housed in the British Museum. The ornament forms part of a range of miniature replicas inspired by the Museum’s collection.

Please note, this replica is not a toy.

Sacred to the ancient Egyptians, cats were particularly important to the goddess Bast, or 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, believed to be the protector of women, children and domestic cats. She was also the goddess of the sunrise, music, dance and pleasure, as well as family, fertility and birth.

A charming gift to add to a collection.
