Tutankhamun attracts attention to this day. His treasures, life story and reign fascinate many all around the world.

In this article, I want to focus on the large piece of jewellery found in his tomb. The pectoral represents a winged-scarab beetle holding the sun.

This striking piece has always intrigued me. The first time I saw it I asked myself the following Why draw the sun with wings? Why would Tut be buried with this pectoral? Is it really the sun?

I was determined to discover more facts about the brooch which led me to planet Mars!

The boy-king will never stop dazzling the world.

Ancient Egyptians were not keen on creating abstract art. They used to design or draw what they saw.

Does it mean that they managed to see the dying days of Mars? I don’t know, but the planet used to have oceans and maybe even life.

The connection between aliens and ancient Egypt is not new. The incredible treasures in Tutankhamun’s tomb strengthen this theory.

He was buried alongside his “alien” dagger.

Italians and Egyptians researchers stated in the Journal of Meteorites and Planetary Science:

“ Meteoritic iron is clearly indicated by the presence of a high percentage of Nickel and Cobalt which strongly suggests an extraterrestrial origin.”

Why was he viewed as a lunar deity? Tut was the son of Nefertiti and Akhenaten who reigned during the Amarna period which saw the birth of Mercury and the dismantling of Mars.

The beautiful brooch was crafted during this period and given to baby Tut.

I believe that the Scarab pendant represents what ancient Egyptians witnessed during this planetary upheaval that gave rise to the solar system.

Magnetic field and Solar wind

Planet Mars used to have rivers and lakes but the solar wind blew it away.

Unlike planet Earth, Mars doesn’t have a magnetic field that holds the wind at bay.

We are fortunate to live in a planet that generates a protective magnetic shield which deflects particles flowing from the sun.

The image from NASA’s website shows the effect of the solar wind on Earth’s magnetosphere.

I have taken a snapshot and rotated it 90 degrees, the result is fascinating. The blue shape looks like a scarab beetle.

Ancient Egyptians associated this insect with rebirth, renewal and reincarnation. The female dung beetle lays its egg in dung then rolls it on the ground.

Ancient Egyptians saw the ball of dung like a golden sun being rolled across the sky.

Khepri was the scarab beetle God. The word kheper means “to emerge” or “to come into being”. Many believed that he was a self-created God.

Every morning, Khepri used to push the Sun across the sky.

The pectoral spells out king Tut’s throne name which is Neb-Kheperu-Re, the lord of worldly manifestations.

Now that we have explained the connection between the scarab beetle and Tutankhamun, we can focus on the wings.

Let’s take a look at what happens when the solar wind strikes Mars. NASA filmed a video presenting this process.

We can see the wings as depicted in the pectoral.

I again decided to take a screenshot and turned the image 90 degrees. We have Mars with wings.

I stand by the theory that Tutankhamun owned a Mars pectoral.
