Egyptian Ankh

The Ankh is one of the most recognisable symbols of Ancient Egypt. It symbolises the concept of eternal life. The teardrop-shaped hoop represents the sun, the arms of the cross represent the horizon, and the vertical shaft represents the pathway of the sun upwards over the horizon. In ancient Egyptian religion, the Ankh was believed to have the power to give life, in both the physical and spiritual sense. As a symbol of fertility, it was associated with Isis, the goddess of fertility. Often shown in the hands of the Pharoah, the Ankh was also a symbol of power, protection and good luck. It was frequently depicted in amulets and jewellery believed to have magical powers.
