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

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

This decoration is made in India from tin, and includes a ribbon for hanging.

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 stunning home décor gift.
