Exclusive to the British Museum, a children’s plastic bookmark featuring an ancient Egyptian cat design.

The image featured on the bookmark is inspired by the Gayer-Anderson Cat statue which is housed in the British Museum. The Gayer-Anderson Cat is a sacred temple cat sculpture from the Late Period of ancient Egypt. The regal and highly decorated bronze statue wears gold earrings and a gold nose ring. Her silver breastplate is decorated with the sacred eye of the god Horus, beneath which is an ornamental scarab and silvered disc.

The cat represents the goddess Bastet. Cats were highly revered in ancient Egypt and were often found in temples as Bastet’s representative.  

A useful souvenir inspired by ancient Egypt.
