Sacred Cat Brooch

Egypt
The cat was sacred in ancient Egypt. Admired for its virility, strength and agility, it was also the symbol of Bastet, the benevolent cat goddess who represented motherhood and joy. She was often portrayed as a woman with a cat's head. Bubastis, a city in Lower Egypt, was famous for its yearly festival in honor of Bastet and for its great cemetery of mummified cats.
