New Arrival: Very attractive ancient Egyptian vivid blue faience cat seated on a base and wearing a collar, from the 26th Dynasty.

Cats were revered in ancient Egypt as they were the sacred animal of the sun god Ra and Bastet. The earliest Egyptian depiction of the cat took the form of three hieroglyph symbols, each representing seated cats. These formed part of the phrase ‘Lord of the City of Cats’ inscribed on a stone block from El-Lisht that may date as early as the reign of Pepy II, 2278-2184 BC. The Egyptian word for cat was the onomatopoeic term miw.
