Egyptian seal.

Commemorative scarab. 1400 BC. They make their appearance during the reign of Hatshepsut (1490-1468 BC).

Egyptian scarabs are usually small figures in the shape of a dung beetle, made of a variety of materials, including stone, precious stones, ivory, bone, faience, or metals such as gold. The lower part had written texts on it. Their functions were diverse: as amulets to protect the wearer; in the funerary cult, the scarab replaced the heart and formulas were inscribed on it so that during the trial of the Souls the heart of the deceased would not testify against itself. Other times they functioned as seals, with the name of the owner, to mark products and goods, or with a text commemorating an important event.

In Egypt, the dung beetle was a symbol of Jefri or Khepri, one of the aspects of the Sun God, who takes this form when he leads the Sun through the firmament. Khepri means “the one who comes into being”, “the one who is born” or “the one who transforms”. He is the self-created God who is born of himself.
