About this work
Scarabs are seen as the symbol of immortality, resurrection and transformation by ancient Egyptians. Because of these values, scarabs were considered a lucky symbol in ancient Egypt. They were used as good luck charms, impression seals to stamp documents with, and for jewelry made from clay or precious stones. They are usually colored green, symbolizing growth.
Scarab amulets were used for their magical rejuvenating properties by both the living and the dead. The Scarab Queen portrays a powerful goddess to pay tribute to strong women who stand up for their rights and advocate for the transformation of a patriarchal society.
