The cat’s head has been part of a cat-shaped sarcophagus for a cat mummy, as a sacrifice to the God Bastet.
The figure is a 1:1 plaster cast of the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek original.
Material of the original: Bronze
Origin of the original: Egypt, around 600 B.C.
Due to the fragile material the plaster cast can not be sent and must therefore be collected at the museum.
