scarab

NoraBattleBlood inspired me to draw this in one of our conversations about her Shadow Frost Scarab deviation here at norabattleblood.deviantart.com… And the scarab turned out much more creepy than I intended! My soul would also leave my body!!

And I realize now(after posting my last drawing) that my drawings can be better seen on my deviantart ^-^

Green jasper heart scarab of King Sobekemsaf

Thebes, Egypt
17th Dynasty, around 1590 BC

The heart scarab was an amulet placed on the chest of the mummy to ensure that the heart, believed to be the seat of intelligence and personality, was not removed. This is among the earliest heart scarabs known, and the first that is known to have belonged to an Egyptian king.
