Treasures of the World Artifact Spotlight:
Ancient Egyptian Scarabs
Carved light green limestone heart scarab, once placed on the throat, chest, or heart of the Mummy. Some were worn by the deceased on a necklace, or mounted in gold settings as a pectoral. Heart scarabs provided the bearer with the assurance that at the final judgment as depicted in the Book of the Dead, the bearer would be found "True of Voice" and accepted into the eternal afterlife by the God Osiris. 18th Dynasty.
Authentic Ancient Egyptian cat Statue
Brown limestone seated cat, sacred to ancient Egypt because of its hostility to snake, with a carved collar necklace and incised scarab beetle resting below the neck. A Ushabti rests in the front. Sitting on a base. 26th Dynasty.
