By Monisha Bandhu EGYPTIAN SYMBOLS

 Ankh The ankh is a symbol of life. It was often carried in the hand.  Nemes The nemes head dress is a piece of cloth pulled tight across the forehead and tied at the back, with two flaps hanging down the sides. It is worn by the pharaoh.  Scarab Scarab beetles lay their eggs on a ball of dung, which is then rolled along the ground and dropped into a hole. The ancient Egyptians associated this with the sun moving across the sky each day. In addition, the beetle grubs hatching from the ball of dung were a sign of rebirth.  Scarab Scarab beetles lay their eggs on a ball of dung, which is then rolled along the ground and dropped into a hole.

 Cartouche A cartouche is an oval shape placed around the names of royal people in hieroglyphic inscriptions. It symbolized the pharaoh as a ruler of all that the sun encircled.  Lotus flower Like the sun that rises in the morning and sets in the evening, the lotus flower blooms in the day and closes each night. The lotus was a symbol of rebirth, the renewal of life and the promise of everlasting life.
