The scarab is a very scared symbol that can be likened to the cross in Christians. It represents the concepts of self-generation, rebirth, renewal and resurrection after the uncanny practice of the dung beetles. It has a variety of use including recording material for important events and inscribing prayers placed on the mummies to protect the dead from evil. It may also be used as stamp seals by officials. Scarabs may be made from a variety of materials including carnelian, steatite, lapis lazuli, basalt, faience, limestone, schist, turquoise, ivory, resin, turquoise, amethyst and bronze. Isis is the feminine archetype for creation; she is the goddess of fertility and motherhood. She has gone by many names and played many roles in history and mythology - as goddess and female creator. Her name literally means Queen of the Throne. Her original headdress was an empty throne chair belonging to her murdered husband, Osiris. As the personification of the throne, she was an important source of the Pharaoh'spower. The pharaoh was depicted as her child, who sat on the throne she provided. Her cult was popular throughout Egypt, but the most important sanctuaries were at Behbeit El-Hagar in the Nile delta, and, beginning in the reign with Nectanebo I (380-362 BCE), on the island of Philae in Upper Egypt. The Eye of Horus is a symbol of protection, good health and royal authority bestowed upon the pharaoh and his people. It is known as the udjat from the goddess Wadjet, who is often seen protecting the king and his subordinates. Later on, it became associated with several other goddesses including Sekhmet, Isis, Bastet, Mut, Nekhbet, Tefnut and Hathor. This symbol appears as human eye with the eyebrow seen in a full-faced person. It is surrounded by markings that are similar to that adorned in the hawk’s eye. More commonly, the right eye represents the udjat but the left eye seen representing it is not uncommon. The reason behind this is that in a connected myth, the sky god’s eyes represented two separate entities: the sun for the right and the moon for the left. Often, the sun is seen as the more powerful eye.
