“Several species of dung beetle, most notably Scarabaeus sacer (often referred to as “scarab”), enjoyed a sacred status among the ancient Egyptians, as the creatures were likened to the major god Khepri. Many thousands of amulets and stamp seals have been excavated that depict the scarab. In many artifacts, the scarab is depicted pushing the sun along its course in the sky, much as scarabs push or roll balls of dung to their brood sites. During and following the New Kingdom, scarab amulets were often placed over the heart of the mummified deceased.” From Wikepedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beetle
