This is a real Ancient Egyptian bronze figurine depicting the Goddess Bastet, dating back to 672-332BCE!
Known as Bast before the unification of ancient Egypt's cultures, she was originally the lioness warrior goddess of Lower Egypt.
Upon unification, Upper Egypt's warrior goddess Sekhmet usurped the role of Bast and she was transformed into Bastet - a powerful, protective, feminine deity and the goddess of cats.
Like the cats of Ancient Egypt, it was believed that she provided protection against evil spirits and contagious disease. Bastet was also the deity that represented the fertility of women and motherhood itself.
This statuette measures ~1.75" tall (~4.25" with custom stand) and can be shipped worldwide!
