Due to their toxicity, self-defense capability and ability to survive extreme environmental conditions, scorpions have always had a symbolic role in various cultures from ancient times until today. Probably the best known use of the scorpion as a symbol is the Scorpio astrological sign in the Zodiac (♏). Of course there are numerous other examples of scorpion symbolism. In Ancient Egypt, the scorpion was the symbol of the goddess Selket (Serket), protector of the dead and guardian of transitioning souls, who was often depicted in tombs with a large scorpion on top of her head. In Greco-Roman mythology, Artemis sends a giant scorpion to sting Orion to death. African shamans believe in high medical power of scorpion’s venom. Nowadays, the scorpion is also a common motif in tattoo art.
