The underneath of the pendant has the birth name cartouche of Tutankhamun showing the sun symbol which depicts him as the son of Ra.
The Scarab is the symbol of the renewal of life.
The dung beetle can be an amulet. The Egyptians saw in the dung ball, which these beetles tirelessly roll before them, the image of the sun disc and a manifestation of Kheper - the god of the rising sun. They also assumed that only male animals exist in this species, since its descendants came forth from a dung heap - after a period of time - and without conception. It therefore became a symbol of the master world-builder who was formed from himself. The Scarab was also considered to be an aspect of the god of creation Atun and the sun god. Its powerful amulet was buried with the deceased as a symbol of new life and placed in the position of the heart.
