Much of what we know about the origins of beekeeping comes from ancient Egyptian tomb walls. The Egyptians loved their honey (often packing pots of it for the trip to the afterlife), and they must have admired the order and productivity they observed in their hives. In Egyptian mythology, the tears of the god Ra took the form of bees, and the bee appears along with a reed to make the hieroglyph "nsw-bity," the symbol of the ruler of upper and lower Egypt.

This little bee is modeled after Middle Kingdom hieroglyphs and amulets, dating from approximately 2055 - 1650 BCE.

• Pin measures just over 1/2" high (13.5 mm)
• Features sturdy nickel pin with clutch back
• Cast in sterling silver or bronze from a hand-carved original model


INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Please note that orders shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and fees levied by the government of the destination country. You may be required to pay these charges upon delivery of your order.

Customs policies vary widely from country to country and are subject to frequent changes, so you may want to check with your local customs office for more information before ordering. Also, customs procedures may cause delays beyond the estimated delivery date. I cannot guarantee delivery of international orders by a specific date. Although most orders arrive within 7 to 14 days, I strongly recommend allowing at least 21 days for delivery and customs clearance if you need your order in time for a special occasion.

The full value of the order will be declared on the customs form. Please note that I cannot mark the item as a "gift"; this is not possible when using Etsy's shipping system, and it is a violation of Federal law.

I have no control over, or any way of predicting, the customs fees and procedures of the destination country.

Thanks for your understanding, and I truly appreciate your business!

Awesome representation of this hieroglyph, with the kind of precision that is found in actual ancient Egyptian art. I love it!
