Description

These fanciful felines recall the gold and carnelian cat effigies perched on a cuff bracelet (ca. 1479–1425 B.C.) crafted during Egypt's New Kingdom period. The cats on this extraordinary adornment in The Met collection evoke 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.
