An orange leather keyring with a design inspired by ancient Egyptian scarab beetles.

The keyring is part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Hieroglyphs: unlocking ancient Egypt.

This keyring is made in the UK from genuine leather and is finished with a gold-plated ring.

In ancient Egypt, the scarab dung beetle was associated with the rising sun and eternal existence. Ancient Egyptians witnessed scarab beetles pushing balls of dung up hills, and believed the sun to be propelled around the earth in the same way; pushed by a giant beetle. Scarabs were seen as powerful amulets, as they symbolised regeneration.

A handsome fashion souvenir.
