Our cat amulet earrings is a reproduction of a faience amulet from around 940-730 BC. Cat amulets were commonly worn throughout the 22nd and 23rd Dynasties to invoke the blessing of Bastet.
In ancient Egypt, cats were considered sacred. They represented Bastet, the cat-headed goddess of Bubastis, a city in the northeastern delta of Lower Egypt. Bastet was originally associated with the sun god Ra and became associated with the sun's life-sustaining power, women's protection, and joy.
