Origin[edit | edit source]

Scarabs were worshipped by the ancient Egyptians as symbols of the sun, rebirth, and everlasting life. When a pharaoh was embalmed his wrappings would contain many scarab charms.

The Scarab Statue of Luxor, Egypt is famous to tourists. It is said that walking around the statue seven times clockwise gives you luck.

Effects[edit | edit source]

When someone walks around it counter-clockwise seven times it bestows great luck. Whether or not the luck is good or bad seems to be random.

In order to keep the artifact complacent it must remain covered in dung. As long as it remains in animal waste it will stay dormant.

Collection[edit | edit source]

Collected by the original Warehouse 13 from Luxor. A duplicate was made to replace it. In order to keep the entire warehouse from stinking, the statue is kept outside the warehouse under a pile of cow dung.
