About this Curation

In ancient Egypt, the cat was considered divine and messengers between the earthly and supernatural. To modern eyes Egyptian cat portraits no longer look like gods but family members. Over time cats have become the purrrfect paradox in our homes: cosy cuddles by day and authoritive rulers by night. This curation is dedicated to artworks on bluethumb that we think put the wow in meow.
