Exclusive to the British Museum, a tie with an ancient Egyptian scarab beetle design.

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

This tie is made from 100% silk and features a repeating pattern of scarab beetles with outstretched wings.

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 history-inspired gift.
