This piece is celebrating and drawing attention to the iridescent beauty of the stag beetle, and it's traditional symbolism. The stag beetle (scarab) in ancient Egyptian symbolism was called Keph-ra. He was the 'Egyptian god of midnight who bears the sun through the underworld'. In Egyptian cosmology, the beetle represents the concept of nonexistence coming into existence. Egyptian belief is that the scarab is a symbol of life beyond the grave, it thus represents immortality, resurrection, transformation and protection.
