Mummy Cat Pendant

$ 32

In Ancient Egypt, cat mummies were donated to goddess Bastet. Bastet was commonly depicted as a cat or woman with the head of a cat or lioness. During the Greek and Roman period the veneration of Bastet reached its peak. The cat mummy’s wrappings of linen strips show a coffered design, the head is shaped naturalistic.
