Ancient The Amduat (underworld) included tracts of land granted to the deceased by the sun god from which the blessed dead could receive their nourishment. Unsurprisingly, wealthy nobles and royalty did not plan on doing any work themselves and so they would take their (symbolic) servants with them. Early versions (Shabti or Shabtiu) were modelled to represent the task that they would perform and given tiny tools etc with which to complete their tasks.The scarab is a particular specie of beetle known as the dung beetle (Scarabeus sacer) that often lends its appearance in various Egyptian amulets and art forms. The scarab is a very scared symbol that can be likened to the cross in Christians. It represents the concepts of self-generation, rebirth, renewal and resurrection after the uncanny practice of the dung beetles. It has a variety of use including recording material for important events and inscribing prayers placed on the mummies to protect the dead from evil. It may also be used as stamp seals by officials. Scarabs may be made from a variety of materials including carnelian, steatite, lapis lazuli, basalt, faience, limestone, schist, turquoise, ivory, resin, turquoise, amethyst and bronze.
