Ornate Egyptian Cat Hand Carved Statue Sculpture Deities Bastet Mafdet Sekhmet :
Cats in ancient Egypt were represented in social and religious practices of Ancient Egypt for more than 30 centuries. Several Ancient Egyptian deities were depicted and sculptured with cat-like heads such as Mafdet, Bastetand Sekhmet, representing justice, fertility and power.
This cat also has a carving across the chest of Horus the falcon god. It measures just over 9" tall 5 5/8" from back to front and 2 1/2" wide, I am unsure what kind of stone it is made of but weighs in at just over 4.5 lbs. Very nice Hieroglyphs around the bottom.
