Scarab Rolling the Sun Revival Earrings

29.00

Colorful turquoise blue patina'ed scarab statement earrings. The scarab is 1 3/8" tall and about 3/4" at the widest. A faceted yellow jade bead ball dances below.

Scarabs in ancient Egyptian religion were an important symbol and amulet. Modeled in the form of the dung beetle (Scarabaeus sacer), which lays its eggs in dung balls fashioned through rolling. This beetle was associated with the divine manifestation of the early morning sun, Khepri, whose name was written with the scarab hieroglyph and who was believed to roll the disk of the morning sun over the eastern horizon at daybreak. Since the scarab hieroglyph, Kheper, refers variously to the ideas of existence, manifestation, development, growth, and effectiveness, the beetle itself was a favourite form used for amulets in all periods of Egyptian history.
