a fake scarab


I did it myself!

Hi Justin,

     Not bad for a first attempt. Your inscription makes sense "Sa Ra", son of the sun,  usually precedes the nomen (written in a cartouche) which is one of the five titulary titles of a pharaoh. The ancient Egyptians rarely, if ever, left a raised dot in the center of Ra. The color and body of the glaze are not right but close. The sculpting shows some art deco influence but not ancient Egyptian.
