Fragment from ancient Egypt

This photo is often shared with caption referring to cats like “We’ve been playing with cats for a very long time indeed. Fragment from ancient Egypt”

The relief is not from ancient Egypt. It’s an modern artwork by “DownUnderPharaoh”, an Australian sculptor. You can check the details on Etsy.
