This is a wonderful Blue Ancient Egyptian Scarab from Faience. This Scarab appears to have been a winged scarab. Winged scarabs were commonly placed on the chest of the mummy during burial and wrapped inside the linens. This scarab is missing its wings. This is a simple textured design with 4 holes on the sides of the scarab where the wings would have been attached. In excellent condition despite missing wings.
