The detailed and elegant carving of its features including nose, ears, emerald coloured eyes and jewel around its neck reminiscing the style of the Ancient Egyptian goddess Bastet.
Carved hardwood hand painted in a gold and red stippled finish.
This is an unusual figurine being large scale and is that of a life sized cat measuring 39cm in height x 26cm wide x 15cm deep.
Some areas of patina and losses to paint, overall in superb condition.
