Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

During my trip in Egypt I came across many symbolical depictions of animals that represent a deity. Such as the Scarab, in the most enchanting and fascinating representations. The symbology really touches me - we are, after all, talking about an Egyptian civilisation from over 3,000 years ago. The scarab was a holy creature and associated with the Chepri, god of the sunrise, who created a new sun at the start of every day. The scarab symbolises this process, pushing balls of dung in which it laid its eggs for a period of incubation - creation, the start of something new. The scarab has been used in jewellery, amulets and artefacts in tombs and temples of the Faraos and queens.
