Description

The fanciful feline on our cat pendant necklace evokes the gold and carnelian cat effigies perched on a cuff bracelet (ca. 1479–1425 B.C.) crafted during Egypt's New Kingdom period and housed at The Met. The cats on this extraordinary adornment in the Museum's holdings nod to the goddess Bastet, a powerful protective figure who was revered for her fertility. These animals were sacred to the Egyptian deity, whose cat-headed depictions typically emphasize her peaceful traits.
