History:Scarabs are often featured in ancient Egyptian culture,first and foremost as a potent symbol for good luck.Another reason is the actual physical characteristics of the beetle.The spherical proportions of the beetle’s wings,and their glittering reflection lends to the perception of the scarab as a symbol of the rising sun. Accordingly,this very powerful connection also insinuates the scarab to be a protector from evil, symbol of rebirth, regeneration, and transformation.
