The cat was revered as a sacred animal and was represented by the Egyptians in stone and bronze for millennia. The proud and independent creature was capable of taming dreadful forces. Bronze cat heads or cat figures were made as offerings in the run-up to the river floods and the New Year when the countdown would start for those due to die in the coming year. Cats in Ancient Egypt were talismans that accompanied in love and protected the world order.
