Silver ring with the representation of a beetle. The dung beetle was one of the most symbolic animals in the Egyptian culture. The same way the beetle push the dung ball, Khepri, the god of the morning's sun with the appearance of a beetle, lifted the sun in the skyline. Just like the sun dies each night to rebirth in the morning, the beetle was considered as a symbol of regeneration and strenght.
