The ancient Egyptians held cats in the highest esteem and the penalties for injuring or killing a cat were very severe. They were admired for their grace and poise as well as their ability to defend against cobras and vermin. Cats were sacred to the goddess Bastet and they are prevalent in Egyptian art and imagery. This antique style Egyptian cat statue has the same regal qualities found in many original Egyptian cat statues. It measures 9 inches high, 3 inches wide, and 5 inches deep. Weighs about 3.5 pounds. It is inspired by an original statue now located at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
