This fantastic ancient Egyptian scarab features a haloed mounting, which is a nod to its origin. A wily English goldsmith crafted a gorgeous 14ct mount of lotuses radiating from his stonepaste body. Lotuses were another totem of rebirth in Ancient Egypt, as they would sink below the surface of their pooling homes at night, only to re-emerge in full bloom with the sun.
