About ScarabsWhen we come to study the phenomena of scarabs, there's a question rising up, why a kingdom as strong and developed as Egypt used a small beetle as an official stamp? What was in it that attracted the Egyptians?The answer is (at least in my opinion) that the beetle's shield remains long after it dies. As in kingdoms, even when kings are coming and going the kingdom remains. In other words the scarab represents a system. In this system each of the managers of various occupations (like the one that is in charge of the wheat, fish, king's food) Each of those managers had a scarab which represents their jobs in the kingdom… and the king himself of course had a scarab. And that is why there are so many scarabs around, after so many years. The question now is how to read these scarabs. If you'd like to hear more details or have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
