Cicada brooches are popular between the 3th and the 6th century, single pieces date back even
to the 7th century. After the discovery of the Childerich grave dating to the late 5th century with numerous
cicada applications, the Childerich "bees" became even a symbol of Napoleon Bonaparte's coat of arms.
Because of their singing, the cicadas were associated with the god of music, Apollo. The subterranean
transformation (metamorphosis) into a flying insect also made the cicada a symbol of youth and rebirth.
