The presence of this figurine of the goddess Bastet in the royal collection testifies to the interest sparked by new finds from Ancient Egypt. This female deity with the head of a cat and a woman's body, also occasionally depicted as a cat, was worshipped far and wide. She was the personification of motherly tenderness, protector of the home and amorous fertility.
