The scarab, holding  a fireball, is the symbol  of renewal, youth and resurrection. Scarab wings represent two eyes: one of them is linked to the night and  the Moon, while  another one is associated with the Sun and creation. The symbol on the scarab’s back (tau) represents the point where the Sky meets the Earth, six dimensions of space and  seven  cosmic principles.

The scarab enjoyed a sacred status among the ancient Egyptians and was linked to Khepri, the god of the rising son.  The scarab is also called the dung beetle because of its practice of rolling a ball of dung across the ground. The Egyptians observed this behavior and equated it with the ball of the sun being rolled across the sky. They confused this balled food source with the egg sack that the female dung beetle laid and buried in the sand. When the eggs hatched the dung beetles would seem to appear from nowhere, making it a symbol of spontaneous creation. In this role it was associated with the sunriseThe image of the scarab, conveying ideas of transformation, renewal, and resurrection, is ubiquitous in ancient Egyptian religious art.
