Cats were considered sacred in ancient Egypt as representations of the Goddess Bastet. Bastet came to be associated with the power of the sun and protection of women, felicity, and joy. Adapted from the original faience (glazed earthenware) amulet dated 940-730 B.C. by Museum Reproductions, our beautiful carnelian, turquoise, and sodalite necklace measures 16".
A beautiful companion to the Egyptian Cat earrings and Bracelet.
