(Paramount, 1981) A prop scarab necklace from Raiders of the Lost Ark, from the collection of a former studio employee. Constructed of metal wire, clay beads, and five ceramic scarab pendants glazed to appear as carved turquoise in braided metal settings, this necklace was used as set decoration in a deleted scene from the Well of Souls escape sequence. In the finished film, Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) and Marion (Karen Allen) are accosted by a series of corpses in close-up shots. During production, an elaborate burial chamber set was prepared with sarcophagi and sacrificial offerings. This necklace was one such burial offering. Measuring 19.5" long, the necklace is in good condition with some cracking, crumbling, and loss to the beads.
