The scarab beetle was quite important in ancient Egypt. People wore amulets shaped like a scarab beetle to offer protection & they were also carved into temples, reliefs and even in the form of one of the Egyptian goddesses- Khepri. The reason behind this was Egyptians saw these beautiful beetles rolling their dung balls and at times saw baby beetles emerge from them. This observation got them to include the scarab in their myth of how the sun crosses the sky. They figured it must be the goddess Khepri rolling the sun across the heavens. This beautiful painting includes such a wonderful beetle in full winged glory in a contrasting night sky with 2 wonderful pyramids below as well as the entire image being painted inside a beautiful collapsible box image.
