Folded scarab 3d printed Art Sculptures This model has a particularly satisfying feel in the hands. It is compact enough to carry around, unlike the unfolded models available here.

From above, a classic Egyptian scarab; from below, a real scarab.

The scarab is in a typical defensive posture, legs folded. As a result, it presents a strikingly different aspect when turned over.

This model is scaled to fit well in the hand, and because of the folded posture, is robust enough to travel well in a pocket. Mine goes with me everywhere. Warning: the claws are as sharp as they look.

I am so grateful for your kind words. If you feel so inclined, do post a photo -- you've got a one-of-a-kind piece on your piano.

Absolutely gorgeous -- I got the glossy gold plate, and it's just wonderful! It's sitting on top of my piano right now, and I love it. :-)

That is a great idea 8-Perf. I hope you do it dadrummond! In plastic, it would be quite affordable as a mouse cover and you wouldn't have to have geometry below.

What a cool idea! The shell really does look like a mouse, doesn't it?

Should paint it up life like and make it a computer mouse cover. :)
