About

Our Egyptian Cat Sculpture is made of fine bronze with incredible details. This reproduction has been made with a mold taken directly from an original artwork exhibited at the Louvre Museum.

Artists from Pharaonic Egypt created animal statues to such a degree of personalization that anyone at the present time can recognize the appearance of an Egyptian cat sculpture. Standing in observation on its back legs, the details of this cat are caught by the sculptor with such vivacity that one could believe it is about to come to life.

It would seem that the domestic cat was imported into Egypt around 2100 BC. Made divine, the female cat represented the goddess Bastet, calm and pleasing, disciplined after the Gods wrath. Bastet was a gracious feline and tamed lioness. According to some researches, the domestic cat would have been introduced from Egypt into Europe, which means most cats in the western world are of Egyptian progeny.
