Raw brass scarab amulets charm
on handmade brass circles.
Hand assembled in the tradition of honoring the ancient
Egyptian sun deities Ra & Kherpi.
[Beetles of the Scarabaeidae family]
Female scarabs use their antenna’s to roll dung into balls.
These balls are used as brood chambers, where eggs are laid and hatched.
Egyptians believed that babies beetles spontaneously emerged from these balls, thus becoming a symbol of the heavenly cycle of rebirth and regeneration.
Although featured in the Egyptian Book of the Dead, scarab amulets were typically worn by the living, representing a significant portion of Egyptian art.
