The Egyptian Revival began in 1922 when Tutankhamun’s tomb was discovered in the Valley of the Kings by Howard Carter and his team. The discovery of the stunning array of Egyptian art lead to a European fascination with Egyptology and Egyptian design. This fascination lasted until roughly the late 1930s.

The winged cat is a common feature of Egyptian architecture and painting and this is most likely just another example of this although they are occasionaly associated with Bastet and to a lesser degree Hathor or Sekhmet.
