Perhaps the ancient Egyptians were on to something.
Your fascination with ancient Egyptian life and myths hasn't faded a bit since you were 10. You can still feel the 100 pounds of library books on ancient Egypt tugging on the shoulder straps of your backpack as you trekked home from the library one warm spring afternoon. The book about Tutankhamon your parents gave you for your birthday that you treasure even today. Your first visit to the Egyptian collection at the Met. Yep, you're smitten.
The sacred scarab, rolling its dung ball behind it, held a kind of magic for the Egyptians.
It was the mirror image of the sun god Ra, rolling the disc of the sun across the sky each day.
Symbolizing creation and rebirth.
Invite one into your home. He takes a prominent position in the front room welcoming visitors.
He fuels more than one conversation from his vantage point on your mantelpiece. From his ancient Egyptian references to his textile origins.
Sumptuous scraps of upholstery fabrics, hand-worked wire legs, faceted glass bead eyes. He arrives sitting on his very own sturdy lustrous leaf, two layers of fabric, veins in yellow, green and metallic gold.
Whether you showcase him in a cabinet or on your shrine, or let him roam freely through your home - - -
- - - this one is the GEM of your collection.
Scarab measures 3" x 1.75" and stands about 1" high (8 x 5 x 2.5 cm). His leaf measures 5.5" x 4.5" (14 x 11 cm).
