a family on one ring!

www.themet.org  Purchase, Patricia A. Cotti and Friends of Egyptian Art Gifts, 2017

How funny I find it that after coming up for air after a holiday weekend of family travel, the first thing I should find is this Egyptian ring upon which an entire cat family perches neatly. From circa 1295-664 B.C. and made of faience, this ring probably celebrated a particular festival.  Have a look at its page over at the Met for more info.
