When the ancient Egyptians observed the sun moving across the sky, they envisioned the sun god Khepri pushing it along, just as the dung beetle rolls his glorious ball of some other creature's scat across the ground. The six projections across his little head resemble the rays of the sun.

This beetle is beautifully green, a color he earned through his repurposing practices. What could be greener than recycling naturally-processed plant matter into sustenance and bedding material for one's grubby offspring?

This indoor-outdoor pillow measures 20" across and is about 5" thick at the center, generously stuffed with polyester fiberfill in a separate, removable casing. Painstakingly hand-painted in shades of weatherproof textile paint, heat-set for permanence. Cover spot cleans, hoses clean or machine washes (gentle cycle) and air dries. The commercial all-weather fabric withstands the effects of sun, rain, wind and Hawaiian Punch spills.

In eighty per cent of the countries of the world, beetles are food, mostly in the larval stage. I am quite content, thank you, to enjoy them as images on throw pillows on my deck chaise lounge. Can be ordered in other colors; just select from the drop-down menu. Designed, painted, sewn, stuffed, signed and copyrighted on beautiful Camano Island, where finding a green beetle is a rare treat!
