Description Scarab The particular species of beetle represented in the numerous ancient Egyptian amulets and works of art was commonly the large sacred scarab (Scarabaeus sacer). This beetle was famous for his habit of rolling balls of dung along the ground and depositing them in its burrows. The female would lay her eggs in the ball of dung. When they hatched, the larvae would use the ball for food. When the dung was consumed the young beetles would emerge from the hole. Millions of amulets and stamp seals of stone or faience were fashioned in Egypt depicted the scarab beetle. It seemed to the ancient Egyptians that the young scarab beetles emerged spontaneously from the burrow was they were born. Therefore they were worshipped as "Khepera", which means "he was come forth." This creative aspect of the scarab was associated with the creator god Atum. Hieroglyphic Writing Cartouche The Egyptian hieroglyphic writing system consists of several hundred picture signs. The signs can be divided into two classes, phonograms and ideograms. Phonograms represent sounds, much as alphabet letters do. Ideograms are signs that represent whole words or concepts. The first hieroglyphs we know about appeared as early as 3100 BC and only the Sumerian language is believed to be older. Hieroglyph also had a variety of definitions of its own they were written in phonographs or ideograms. The Ancient Egyptians used hieroglyphics to make a record of what their view of the universe was. It is believed that the hieroglyphic system of writing was brought to Egypt by invaders who came from the north-east. The word hieroglyphics is made up of two Greek words hieros which means sacred, and glyphe, which means carving. Ancient Egyptian writing used over 2,000 hieroglyphic characters. The hieroglyphics picture signs can be written from right to left; from left to right; or vertically, reading downwards. Hieroglyphs turned out to be a combination of picture-writing and sound-writing. Payments We accept PayPal payments Only. Payments must be made within 7 days.
