Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures




Khepri was the god of creation, the movement of the sun, and rebirth.  This large replica of an authentic and ancient scarab.  It was hand carved near the city of Sais, in the West Nile Delta.


Ancient Egyptians believe that scarabs (beetles) came out of nowhere, with similar beliefs about their creator god.  This elevated the status of these beetles.


Carved in the 1960s.  Would make a nice desk ornament, atop papers.  Stand not included.
