Hand-Carved Scarab Beetles - Made in Egypt

Hand Carved and Hand-Painted Egyptian Scarab Beetle

Available in Light Blue and Navy Blue


In ancient Egyptian religion, the sun god Ra is seen to roll across the sky each day, transforming bodies and souls. Beetles of the family Scarabaeidae (dung beetle) roll dung into a ball as food and as a brood chamber in which to lay eggs; this way, the larvae hatch and are immediately surrounded by food. For these reasons the scarab was seen as a symbol of this heavenly cycle and of the idea of rebirth or regeneration.
