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.
