Here is an immaculately hand-carved Egyptian heart scarab. Hieroglyphics cover both sides of the swirled green faience piece, blending perfectly with the classic Egyptian design. For the ancient Egyptians, the heart was not only the center of life, but also of thinking, memory, and moral values. Therefore, the heart needed to be protected. 

Heart scarabs were very popular amulets, particularly in funerary settings. Often placed with the dead, these amulets held a protective spell on the flat side to stop their hearts from betraying them as they entered the afterlife.

This ancient Egyptian artifact has been attested to as authentic and dated to between the Late Period to Alexander’s Conquest (c.664-332 B.C.) by Mr. Matthew Wicks of Ancient Hands LTD, incorporated in the United Kingdom, and accompanied by a digitally signed PDF copy of its “Provenance & Ownership” documentation.
