The scarab is a symbol of self-creation and rebirth. The scarab beetle rolls its ball of dung from morning to night – the Egyptians associated this with the sun rising, transforming the scarab into the God Khepri. Due to the nature of the scarab’s rebirth every morning it is a symbol of eternal life. Since the scarab beetle has its eggs inside the ball for protection it is seen as a powerful symbol of self-creation because of the emerging young. In artwork the scarab is seen flying or rolling the sun from night to day or holding the cartouche of kings or queens. The Scarab is on a continuing quest through the waking hours (the conscious) and the realm of night (the sub-conscious).
