The goddess "Bastet" was worshipped as a protectress of women and their babies, plus was goddess of music and song. She was usually represented as a female figure with a cat head.
This elegant black cat is shown with painted Egyptian jeweled neckwear and a golden earring. She is about 1 1/2 inches tall and packaged in a clear acetate box.
Each miniature figurine is entirely hand-painted by talented artists using a very thin brush with only a few hairs. Every piece is high-fired and subjected to rigorous quality control. This process guarantees the purity of the colors, the perfect shape and the sharpness of every detail.
