Scarab at Karnak

I was away in Egypt and Jordan over the last week and I am going to fail to avoid being a dull tourist who comes back and tells everyone stuff about it. Below is my first ever YouTube video of a Scarab beetle statue that is now in the Karnak temple area but which was previously in the Valley of the Kings.

It is apparently good luck to walk around the statue three times and seven and nine circuits will cause you to have a spouse or baby respectively...

I tried to capture this as an image but it was not obvious what was happening, so here's my camera's best attempt at a video.
