If you enjoy visiting the Egyptian gallery of the DIA, you'll love this beautiful mini sculpture of the Egyptian Goddess Bastet, the cat headed goddess of Ancient Egypt.
Cats were sacred to Bastet, a sun goddess who represents the warm, life giving power of the sun. She was known as the goddess of joy and protector of women. This statue shows Bastet as a cat headed woman holding a sistrum.
Made of cold cast resin, hand-painted in a polished basalt finish with antiqued gold accents to highlight every detail.
Perfect gift for those that love Egyptian art as well as cat lovers.
Measures 1" W x 1" D x 3.25" H.
