Ancient Egyptian works to be published together in English for first time

Scarabs were popular amulets in ancient Egypt. According to ancient Egyptian myths the sun god, Ra rolls across the sky each day and transforms bodies and souls. Modeled upon the Scarabaeidae family dung beetle. Which rolls dung into a ball for the purposes of eating and laying eggs that are later transformed into larva, the scarab was seen as an earthly symbol of this heavenly cycle. @Jess Pearl Pearl Pearl Pearl Liu zheng.wikipedia.org

The Egyptian scarab beetle is a very recognizable artifact. It has appeared in tombs, ancient Egyptian art, and even some very famous album covers.
