Egyptian revival scarab, Circa 1920 finds itself encrusted with Lapis Lazuli, Carnelian and Turquoise. The scarab, a sacred beetle for Egyptians who believed that the scarabs represented rebirth as well as the rising and setting of the sun. Ever since I went to my first Egyptian art exhibit as a child I have had a fascination with scarabs and have coveted them ever since. For me the ability to recreate yourself is represented through the scarab.
Serpents have been worshiped since the dark ages. My fascination with them is endless. I am in awe with their beauty of texture and color. This piece, another extraordinary example of Egyptian revival dates back to 1880 and represents royalty (serpent) and rebirth (scarab). An eternal beauty!!!
An imperial Chinese dragon symbolizes power, strength and good luck. This is an incredible example of craftsmanship. This stunning masterpiece is Circa 1900, England and is sadly NOT in my collection, a girl can dream!
