In Ancient Egypt, the scarab beetle was seen as the epitome of divinity.
As a symbol of rebirth, it was believed to illustrate the Sun’s heavenly path
across the sky and its daily self-renewal. Produced from precious metals and
gemstones, these beautifully crafted sacred beetles were popular talismans,
often used as currency. Today, the scarab-shaped amulets are excavated
in the countries that once had commercial relations with Ancient Egypt.
