Exclusive to the British Museum, a unisex t-shirt featuring a design inspired by the worship of cats in ancient Egypt.

Made from 100% cotton with gold foil detailing, this t-shirt fits a size medium.

About the Egyptian Cat design:

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.

The hieroglyphics in this design have been taken from the British Museum’s limestone false door of the High Priest Ptahshepses. In the Old Kingdom, false doors were a standard feature of tombs in the Memphite region, acting as an interface between the worlds of the living and the afterlife. The façade is covered with texts giving good wishes for the afterlife.

An ideal gift for lovers of history and design.
