The symbol of rebirth, transformation, and self-creation, the scarab played an important role in the ancient Egyptian mythos, even serving as an avatar of the greatest gods of the pantheon: Horus and Ra. The scarab was believed to push the sun across the sky every day, giving life and warmth to the world, and was one of the most popular amulets and charms in the ancient culture. Hand carved by Egyptian artisans from soapstone.
