Christies will be selling an excellent selection of Antiquities in New York today. Among the varying lots will be this rather elegant looking Egyptian bronze model of a cat from the late period to Ptolemaic period 664-30 B.C. It has been well documented that cats were worshiped in Egypt and were often depicted as noble creatures such as in this statue. If you wish to own a piece of this historical ancient cat worship you may have to part with $120,000 – $180,000.
