The Country of Egypt has always been perceived as an exotic destination, especially for North Americans. Within its borders, we can find some of the world's oldest relics of civilization including tombs as well as the famous Pyramids, built with the use of slave labor. This poster was designed by the artist M. Azmy who was also known for other Egyptian tourism designs.

In this image, we see depiction of Bastet, the ancient Egyptian Cat Goddess. Bastet (Bast) Cats were very important to the ancient Egyptians and were even considered to be demi-deities. Not only did they protect the crops and slow the spread of disease by killing rodents, they were also thought to be the physical form of the goddess Bastet. ... She had the head of a cat and a slender female body.
The design is alluring and also carries a sense of mystery, inviting the viewer to come and visit Egypt.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
