7. BASTET box
Our BASTET box combines Ancient Egyptian culture with functionality. This decorative box features the cat goddess protecting a decorative box featuring hieroglyphics on each side. This box is perfect for small items such as jewelry pieces, a one-of-a-kind gift box or simply a decorative piece for your home.
Anubis is the Egyptian God of the Dead. He is often depicted with a jackal head and human body or just as a jackal crouching down as seen in the picture below. Anubis is not only the God of the Dead, he symbolizes the journey of death and acts as a guardian. We based this design off of an ancient box found inside the tomb of Tutankhamen. The box is decorated with hieroglyphics on every side and the lid is topped off with a crouching Anubis, similar to the Sphinx which sits near the Pyramids of Giza.
9. GIZAH box
As one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, our GIZAH box is based off of one of the most talked about ancient structures in the world – the Pyramids of Giza. Although construction of these colossal monuments, our designers carefully 3D modeled this pyramid box so you could print it on your printer. We added symbols from Ancient Egypt like the all-seeing eye and texture of stone used to build the pyramids.
10. BASTET statue
Bastet, a symbol of protection and maternity, is a cat goddess from Ancient Egypt, still adorned in many forms today in museums all over the world. Our model is based off of real Egyptian design with her elegant shape, yet powerful stance on top of a decorated hieroglyphic base. Everyone should 3D print Bastet, for the love of 3D Printing and history!
