The Sacred Beetle, and Others: The Breeding and Life of the Scarab Dung Beetles; their Habitat, Nest-Building, and Domestication
The Sacred Beetle, and Others: The Breeding and
Jean-Henri Fabre was a famous French entomologist whose observations of insects were praised - this examination of various beetles is characteristic of his meticulous yet engrossing descriptions. Fabre's greatest talent was rooted in his genuine passion for entomology; a natural ability to observe the quirks and habits of small creatures, and describe them to others in a plain but lively way. As demonstrated in this book, he wrote about insects as if they were his friends - seeing their lives play out, it is thus that qualities of biography are found alongside the scientific value of this work. In life, Fabre met with backlash for his unique style - formal schools, whom he in turn criticized for dryness of tutoring - considered his books long-winded, or even frivolous. Nevertheless he managed to connect atmospheric pressure to the behavior of certain insects, while contemporaries such as Charles Darwin held Fabre in high esteem, to the point of finding his studies inspirational.

Ebros Egyptian Amulet Black and Gold Scarab With Hieroglyphs Statue 3"Wide As Symbol of Rebirth Rejuvenation Transformation Figurine
Ebros Egyptian Amulet Black and Gold Scarab With
In ancient Egyptian religion, the sun god Ra is seen to roll across the sky each day, transforming bodies and souls. Beetles of the Scarabaeidae family (dung beetle) roll dung into a ball as food and as a brood chamber in which to lay eggs that are later transformed into larvae. For these reasons the scarab was seen as a symbol of this heavenly cycle and of the idea of rebirth or regeneration. The Egyptian god Khepri, Ra as the rising sun, was often depicted as a scarab beetle or as a scarab beetle-headed man. The ancient Egyptians believed that Khepri renewed the sun every day before rolling it above the horizon, then carried it through the other world after sunset, only to renew it, again, the next day. A golden scarab of the monotheistic Nefertiti was discovered in the Uluburun wreck.
