The Egyptian Cat Goddess Bastet was a very important deity in ancient Egypt. She was said to protect women and the home from evil spirits and disease. A cult of Bastes came into existence and became so popular the people from all around Egypt would gather to worship her. Many of those loyal followers brought their mummified cats with them to be buried at the temple of Bastet in Bubastis. Egyptians believed that the cat goddess would protect them and lead them to their afterlife. This unique ceramic cat cremation urn for ashes follows this ancient tradition of entrusting a cat's remains to the goddess to be looked after forever.
