A lovely a minimalist stick pin featuring an agate cabochon carved in the style of a scarab, and in the sweetest pale purple that alternately between lilac and lavender in different light. The scarab (a dung beetle!) was revered in ancient Egypt as representing the cycle of rebirth - a symbol of immortality, of transformation, and of resurrection. We love the aesthetic, but we also love the idea of this powerful motif reminding us that through change we continue on day after day. Scarabs feature prominently in each Egyptian revival - particularly following discoveries in the Napoleonic, Victorian, Art Deco, and mid-century eras - as well as Art Deco revivals, such as in the 1980s.

Very good vintage condition with minimal wear.
