For a very long time in ancient Egypt, cats were worshiped and considered sacred. Cats are natural hunters and so were considered protectors of the Pharaoh against venomous snakes and scorpions.

Over the years, cat worship increased, to the point that several important ancient Egyptian deities were depicted as cats or having cat heads. These included Mafdet, Bastet, Sekhmet and Mut. Cats were a popular subject for all sorts of amulets, statues, and artwork. And when they died, cats were embalmed and buried in coffins in cat cemeteries.

The cat in this pendant is shown in classic Egyptian profile, slender and upright, with a golden collar accented with a blue crystal. The matching golden base under its long tail is inscribed with hieroglyphs. Details such as the cat's eyes and ears, and the hieroglyphs, are accented with a dark oxidized effect.
