Beetles have also caught the eye, and prayers, of those people seeking Divine intervention. By far, the most well-known beetle to grace the surface of religious artifacts is the Scarab Beetle. Known as ‘The Creator’ or ‘The Khepri’ in ancient Egypt, Scarab Beetles were believed to be a representation of the Sun God and the way they rolled their dung ball across the hot desert sands was said to be a cosmic re-enactment of the ancient Sun god, Atum, pushing the sun across the vast sky.

The Egyptian name for the Scarab Beetle (Kheper) translates into ‘to come into existence and transform’and their connection with the Divine accounts for why important Egyptians like pharaohs and noblemen were buried lots of Scarab Beetles and their tomb walls were filled with images of the insect in its spiritual quest to ‘push the Sun across the sky’.

Bejeweled Scarabs were wrapped in the mummified pharaoh’s bandages in the belief that this would help him to reawaken in the land of the Dead and start his journey towards resurrection.

Outside of the Egyptian spiritual realm, beetles became renowned as signs of good fortune. Ladybugs are common characters in children’s stories and play. Many non-profits that promote tolerance and peace use the image of an adorable Ladybug to easily convey their message. Who knows, it might bring your soul mate to you.
