This winged scarab artifact, handcrafted in Luxor, Egypt, is a unique piece composed of three segments: a scarab beetle at the center, flanked by two artisan-made wings. Unlike typical beetle wings, these are designed to resemble bird wings, evident from their shape and the detailed representation of individual feathers. Each section of this artifact contains several tiny holes, originally intended for attaching the winged scarab to a mummy's wrappings.
In ancient practices, these amulets were believed to ensure the rebirth of the deceased. Moreover, they are also cherished as good luck charms by the living, each one meticulously handmade, reflecting a blend of cultural heritage and craftsmanship.
