Iridescence N° 4: In mythology, beetles are often portrayed as treasure keepers. The ancient Egyptian god Khepri was represented by a scarab beetle, or a scarab-headed man, holding the sun aloft. This symbol possibly arose from the Ancients watching dung beetles from the family Scarabaeidae that roll dung into a ball as food and brood chamber in which they lay their eggs; when the larvae hatch, they are immediately surrounded by food, and then emerge as fully developed creatures. The action of rolling was akin to the sun being rolled above the horizon. This explains why the beetle was regarded as a symbol of the heavenly cycle of rebirth. The beetle is also often used as a talisman or symbol of protection. This came about as scarabs were believed to sense the annual flooding of the Nile. The beetles would flee before the flood, announcing the much-anticipated arrival of the replenishing water. Ancient dream books interpret beetles as a sign of modest character that is much beloved by others. The beetles are Nature’s living jewels.
