Eqyptian Winged Scarab Metal Bookmark
Egyptian mummy cases were the protection for the deceased soul and were decorated with magical symbols and spells that assisted the deceased in passing through the underworld to the next life. The winged scarab beetle holding the sun represents new life and rebirth. The hieroglyphic inscription is an offering to the god Osiris in order that he may give life to the deceased.
The Chrysler's Ancient Worlds collection includes objects with scarabs.
