Scarab Amulet


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This scarab has a flat underside and is without bottom design. It is pierced lengthwise and was originally mounted or threaded. The pale green color, which symbolizes the verdancy of the crops and with it the regeneration of nature, should intensify the renewal connotation of the scarab.
