Styled after the sacred Scarab on pedestral in Karnak Temple at Luxor. The scarab is the most popular good luck charm from ancient Egypt. Symbol of rebirth, transformation, and self-creation, this scarab is actually a dung beetle that the ancients believed pushed the sun across the sky each day, only to disappear and magically re-appear the next morning. As such, it is a powerful amulet for self-creation, transformation, and re-birth. They were worn or carried by the living, and also buried with the dead to help them on their way to the afterlife. The base was usually inscribed with designs or hieroglyphs to form an impression seal.
The size of the box is 5 inches tall and 2 inches by 2.5 inches and 2.75 inches deep.
