The Egyptian Scarab Beetle was associated with the god of the Rising Sun called Khepri. Khepri represents rejuvenation, divine wisdom and immortality. He was one of the forms of Ra, the sun god. Khepri was the dawn, Ra was midday and Atum was the evening sun.
He was often shown as a beetle-headed man, a beetle-headed hawk or just simply the scarab beetle.
The name Khepri comes from the ancient Egyptian word kheper meaning “to become” or “to be transformed”. He is the creative power linked with the miracle of the first sunrise every morning. The Egyptians would refer to him as “The Shining One”.
