A beautiful parrot handbag covered with Scarab.
Each scarab wing is cut by hand to size, shaved from the inside, reinforced and carefully adhered one by one to the handbag shell which needs to be pressed down by hand (piece by piece) for five minutes to assure that the glue holds. It took three months for two people to complete the job. After finishing this tedious task, the frame of gilded sterling silver set with diamonds is added along with the silk lining inside.
Gently squeeze the legs together and the bag will open.
Scarabs were revered in ancient Egypt as symbols of resurrection.
