When I discovered these hand carved scarab beetles it was like discovering a portal into a lost primordial world. Modeled after true ancient artifacts, these little works of art were carved and hand painted to hold timeless symbolism. Scarabs were a prominent motif across ancient Egyptian culture. They were worshipped by pharaohs and enshrined in art, adorning tombs, thrones, palaces, and jewelry.
These adorable and magical scarabs are carved from soapstone and painted a lovely turquoise blue. They can be used as home decor and put on your altar. Or if you prefer to wear them as adornments, they come conveniently pre-drilled with holes so you can fashion them easily into a necklace or bracelet.
The magic of these hand carved scarab beetles
These scarab beetles are talismans of the Egyptian god Khepri, whose name means “becoming.” Khepri reigns over rebirth and dawn in the Egyptian pantheon, and is often depicted as a man with a scarab head.
Upon closer inspection, ancient Egyptians took notice that the scarab beetle appeared identical in shape to a top-down viewpoint of the brain. Thus, they were considered a connection to the beyond, to the divine. And this portion of the human head became sacred, as if a channel between the lower body and the heavens. In burial, a scarab beetle would be placed upon the entombed person’s heart for ease of passage into heaven, or paradise.
The hand carved scarab beetles I’m offering here are all different and unique, so please allow for variation. As they are hand crafted, no two are identical. When you receive your scarab carving, you may notice a hole through it from top to bottom. This was modeled after the original artifacts, which could be strung ornamentally onto a breastplate for their sacred symbolism. And now you can do the same. Just like an ancient Egyptian priestess!
Place your scarab upon your Crown Chakra during meditation, and ask it for connection to the god Khepri – that he may bless you with light and fertility. When not in use, display yours on your altar as a beautiful piece of art and ancient magic.
