Scarab Lapel Pin
Ancient Egyptians associated the scarab dung beetle with the god Khepri who was responsible for pushing the sun across the sky each day, because of the way the dung beetle tireless rolls the pellet containing its eggs. Since the cycle of the sun continues each day, the Scarab was associated with themes of rebirth. Because the beetle's young were seen to emerge from the pellet, the ancients believed that the scarab beetle had mystical creative power, and could create its own young.
