The Cicada is a symbol of rebirth and longevity. Cicada also speaks of the ability to “shed one’s skin” and emerge as something new and different in life. Coming out of your shell and expressing yourself. There was a great interest in Egypt in the early 20th century as Tutankhamun had been discovered. This led to what is called the Egyptian Revival style and many pieces were made to celebrate the period.

This is a good example of a carved and coloured horn cicada.
