Dallas Museum of Art presents Divine Felines: Cats of Ancient Egypt opening day
From domesticated cats to mythic symbols of divinities, felines played an important role in ancient Egypt for thousands of years. Divine Felines: Cats of Ancient Egypt features cats and lions in ancient Egyptian mythology, kingship, and everyday life through diverse representations from the world-famous holdings of the Brooklyn Museum. The exhibition features more than 80 objects exploring wild and domestic cats, feline deities, cat burial practices and luxury items decorated with feline features, as well as a small section on dogs.
Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on display through January 8, 2017.
