Back of pectoral necklace depicting the solar beetle flanked by baboons
Necklace features two baboons, sacred to the god Thoth, flanking a lapis lazuli scarab beetle that holds a shen ring in its hind legs and pushes a carnelian sun disk with its front legs. The baboons and beetle sit in a papyrus skiff with the star studded hieroglyph for sky. The sun was one of the most important acts of worship in ancient Egypt, Kings built temples and obelisks to show their care. Here in this necklace and between the two baboons there is the sun god Khepri, the sacred scareb, who was associated with the sunrise. Khepri is pushing the sundisc across the sky.
