In Ancient Egypt, scarabs were highly revered as a symbol of rebirth, creativity, and renewal. Shaped like dung beetles who rolled their eggs in balls of dung, this reminded Ancient Egyptians of the way the sun moved across the Sky. These eggs would hatch spontaneously and demonstrate an even stronger affiliation with rebirth and the moment of creation. So close is the relationship between the Scarab and the sun’s movement through the sky, that it was believed that the sun god was reborn in the form of a Scarab at sunrise, after every evening. Incredibly revered, many images of the scarab have been found in ancient hieroglyphics, in tombs, and as part of ancient jewelry adornments.
