Assembli - 3D insect Scarab Beetle Green

3D insect Scarab Beetle Green


12 €   Incl. 21% VAT

A very special beetle with great skills! Scarab beetles, also known as dung beetles, form spheres of manure to lay their eggs in. They do this during the day and use their chisel-like head to make the ball perfectly spherical. They roll the ball by pushing it with their hind legs and on their way they climb on top of the ball to navigate where to go. They can use the sun, the moon and even the galaxy to navigate! Once they have found their destination, they bury the ball in the ground.
It is this behavior that appealed to the imagination of the ancient Egyptians. They linked the sun god Khepri to this beetle. The rolling of the ball and its disappearance was compared to the sun that moves through the air and disappears every day.

Here in satin gold.
A nice present for yourself or someone else.

Making the beetle is a precise and very delicate task. The small and super detailed parts of the beetle are made of black cardboard. The shields are made of unique metallic paper to mimic the colorful effect of the real exotic beetles.
You can mount the beetle on the wall with or without the included white cardboard display. You can also place the beetle on the white cardboard display and put it on your desk, shelf, side table or anywhere else!
You make it (without glue) in about 15 minutes.

Dimensions: 7 x 9 x 4 cm

Color: gold, black
Assembli is a Dutch brand name that includes the creative collaboration between Lankhorst design and print B.V. and designer Joop Bource. Together we develop modern and challenging self-assembly projects to create a decorative element by ourselves. We prefer to use the word 'project' rather than 'product', because we like to involve the customer more in the realization process than usual. Solving a spatial puzzle, such as our papercraft building boards, can have a positive effect during the completion process. Being offline for a moment, working together with friends or family, proud to have made a sculpture with one's own hands, concentration... each project is a 'mindful journey', sometimes even meditative, but you can also occasionally drive yourself to despair.   ›››
