This sculpture is known as the Gayer-Anderson Cat, named after Major Robert Grenville Gayer-Anderson who, together with Mary Stout Shaw, donated it to The British Museum, London. The statue is a representation of the cat-goddess Bastet. The cat wears jewellery and a protective wedjat amulet and is decorated with a winged scarab that appears on the chest and head. A copy of the statue is kept in the Gayer-Anderson Museum, located in Cairo. Further reading can be found here. (information source; British Museum)  This object is part of "Scan The World".
