Vintage mixed media poster depicting the iconic Ancient Egyptian Scarab beetle as typically depicted in Pharaonic art, jewelry and decor. The scarab beetle was one of the most iconic and popular amulets in ancient Egypt, associated with the mighty sun god, Ra.
The Egyptians viewed the scarab as a symbol of renewal and rebirth. The beetle was associated closely with the sun god because it rolls large balls of dung to lay their eggs, a behavior that the Egyptians thought resembled the progression of the sun through the sky from east to west.
Its young were hatched from this dung ball. This was seen as an act of spontaneous self-creation, giving the beetle an even stronger link with the Ra’s creative force. The connection between the beetle and the sun was so strong that the sun god was thought to be reborn in the form of a winged scarab beetle every morning when the sun rises. As this young sun god, Khepri, rose in the sky, he brought light and life to the land.
This print is colored with deep, royal colors, traditional to Ancient Egyptian art and fashion.
