Logos (Greek: Λόγος, lit. ‘’Word”, “Discourse”, or “Reason’’).
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”.
“The Word” is represented by Chrysina Resplendens (the golden scarab beetle), one
of the world’s most sought-after beetles, found in Costa Rica, Panama, El Salvador
and other countries in Central America. It is the only creature on the planet to exactly mimic the appearance of gold itself. The heathen irresistibly drawn to it are represented by Cyclommatus Metallifer (the black stag beetle) from South East Asia.
