The Divine Cat:
speaking to the gods in Ancient Egypt
An exhibition of one the British Museum's most famous ancient Egyptian objects.
One of the British Museum’s most famous and best-loved Egyptian artefacts is the Gayer-Anderson cat, that is dated to after 600BC. Forty-two centimetres high and adorned with gold and silver jewellery, it is one of the finest examples of a copper alloy statue to survive from ancient Egypt.
It was the focal point of a hugely successful display in Room 3 at the British Museum in 2007 and will now travel to Brent Museum in Willesden, London, in collaboration with the London Renaissance Hub.
