Gary James McQueen’s “Guiding Light” Scarab Postcard is inspired by a brooch the artist-designed made out of solid 9ct Rose Gold with a Mother of Pearl underwing and precious stone centerpiece. The ancient Egyptians believed that Khepri renewed the sun every day before rolling out onto the horizon, then it carried through the other world after sunset, only to renew it again, the next day.
The image was flat foiled, fluted foiled, foiled with a textured die, and multi-level embossed, then digitally printed in white toner on the reverse.
