Ancient Egyptian Arts Integration


Don't be "scarabed" - these bugs don't bite!
They are part of our 6th grade arts integration project.
Just wait until you see the fabulous sarcophagus pieces that the
rest of the students have made!

The colors of the scarab beetles were beautiful & rich just as the students have shown us here with their lovely work! Blue symbolized the Nile River of course. Red symbolized the Sun God Ra or Atum. Gold was for the desert and sun. Green was used to represent the growth that was so important to the ancient Egyptians.

Over time, the scarab became a sacred symbol to ancient Egyptians. It served as a symbol of regeneration & creation. The Egyptian scarab beetle was also used as an amulet or a good luck charm by all classes & statuses of people in ancient Egypt. The scarab beetle was often used in the making of jewelry and was believed to hold strong magical & religious powers. The owners name was inscribed in hieroglyphics on the bottom to ensure that protective powers would be given to the wearer. Ancient Egyptians wore their scarab beetles on rings, pendants & necklaces!
