Artist's Description

The scarab symbolises rebirth and manifestation, being the representation of the newborn sun as it appears on the horizon.

It represents renewal and is linked to the daily cycle of the sun and was a popular amulet throughout the pharaonic period and beyond. A scarab amulet protected the heart, and in some cases was inscribed with a spell in case one’s heart might testify unfavourably before the gods in the Hall of Judgement.

This scarab is shown with the sun disk of the supreme solar deity Ra above and the shen ring of eternity below, making it an amulet of eternal protection.
