Mystic Moon Cat Pendant – Sterling Silver
Throughout history the cat has been revered. In Celtic lore the cat represents the guardian of the Otherworld. They keep the secrets of the Otherworld eternally to themselves, as they gaze with guile upon a world that does not see or understand the depth of their knowledge. In Ancient Rome they were sacred to Diana, and were also considered to be a home guardian and a symbol of domestic goodness. Norse lore depicts them drawing the chariot of their fertility goddess, Freyja, a blessing upon newborns. In Egypt cats were sacred and were even depicted on the head of their lunar goddess, Bastet which was worshipped by the ancient Egyptians. In her honor, cats were even mummified along with mice for them to eat.
The Mystic Moon Cat Pendant calls forth all the mysteries, stealth, agility and serenity of the cat. Long known as a familiar of witches, companion of Goddesses, and confidante of millions, cats walk freely and confidently in the world of humans while maintaining all of their feline independence and skills.
Hand cast in sterling silver, the Mystic Moon Cat Pendant is a delightful piece of jewelry for those who feel close to cats and their history.
