RING | SCARAB

2150

Description

The scarab - especially the green kind - is known for signaling longevity and rebirth, coming all the way from the Middle East to affect the Greeks in the most peculiar ways, like centrifugal observations. It was also worshiped as a live jewel, since used from gem engravers as a study of forms. Stones were also sculpted in the shape of scarabs to be gifted to pregnant women in order to keep them safe. Hand-sculpted in detail, meant to imitate the remnant fossils imprinted on shales, still surviving in time.
