ACTIVITY: Ancient Egypt Coloring Page: Scarab Pectoral

What's going on in the picture below? 
Look closely, can you identify the following imagery? 
  • Ancient Egyptians felt scarab beetles represented the sun god. Can you find one? 
  • See the baboons on either side of the scarab? They are in an adoration position. Look under the baboons' feet; notice they're standing in a boat. 
  • Beneath the boat, see those ‘herringbone’ lines? They're water. 
  • Find the hieroglyphics on either side of the baboons. They spell out the name Osiris. 
  • At the top, you'll find the wings of Isis.
  • This pectoral was a protective amulet that represented renewal or rebirth.
