In one form, Scarabs were a cheap and common form of "charm" which everyone could afford and easily wear strung on a cord on their person. Most Scarabs were made for the living. The small magical object was believed imbued with particular protective powers that warded off evil and provided good things for the owner for this life and also for the next, particularly when sewn to mummy wrappings. This was especially true when worn as a heart scarab or winged scarab to provide a safe journey into the Afterworld of the gods.
