The underside depicts a central reef knot which emerges a pattern in mirror image of lotus head and buds with long stalks. These elements are typical of the 2nd intermediate period. Scarabs were produced in vast numbers for many centuries and many thousands have survived. They were generally intended to be worn or carried by the living. This scarab is from the Gustave Mustaki collection. Mustaki amassed a collection of antiquities from Alexandria in Egypt. Mustaki was an avid collector in the early 20th century and his collection came to the UK under Egyptian license in 1947. Many of the pieces are in major museums world wide, including the British Museum, the Getty Museum and the Egyptian state museum. Ancient Art has purchased over 1700 scarabs from this collection.
