The ancient Egyptians symbol for rebirth and the ability to be reborn was the Scarab Beetle. Scarabs were worn as jewelery and amulets in ancient Egypt.
Because the scarab beetle emerges out of a dung ball placed in the ground the year before, it was sacred to the ancient Egyptians (because it symbolized resurrection form an entombed mummy) and scarabs were carved into amulets.
Ancient Egyptians also worshiped them because they believed their rolling of the balls of dung had something to do with the sun rising and setting.
