They survive in large numbers and, through their inscriptions and typology, they are an important source of information for archaeologists and historians of the ancient world. They also represent a significant body of ancient art.Scarabs (beetles) were produced in vast numbers for many centuries and many thousands have survived. They were generally intended to be worn or carried by the living. They were typically carved or moulded in the form of a scarab beetle (usually identified as Scarabaeus sacer) with varying degrees of naturalism but usually at least indicating the head, wing case and legs but with a flat base. The base was usually inscribed with designs and/or hieroglyphs to form an impression seal. Scarabs were usually drilled from end to end to allow them to be strung on a thread or incorporated into a swivel ring.SCARAB In ancient Egyptian religion, the sun god Ra is seen to roll across the sky each day, transforming bodies and souls. Beetles of the Scarabaeidae family (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. The Egyptian god Khepri, Ra as the rising sun, was often depicted as a scarab beetle or as a scarab beetle-headed man. The ancient Egyptians believed that Khepri renewed the sun every day before rolling it above the horizon, then carried it through the other world after sunset, only to renew it, again, the next day. A golden scarab of Nefertiti was discovered in the Uluburun wreck.Our Guarantee That the Item Will Delivered to You As Shown in Pictures Therefore we recommend that you see the picture well and then take your decision and take your responsibility.Height: 2.3 cmWidth: 5 cmLength: 6.5 cmPayment: We Accept PayPal.Shipment: DHL Fast Shipping 4-12 Days with track number.Condition: Good Condition As shown in pictures.Provenance: Stone in the Desert of the Egyptian City of LuxorReturns: we refund you money after you return the piece.AttentionGet Your Gift After You Win The Auction Thank You For your time to view our listing and appreciate your time Condition: As Shown In Pictures, Provenance: Luxor, Material: Stone
