…….called ANKH by the Egyptians.
It is one of the most recognized symbols from Ancient Egypt dating c.3150 – 2613 BC -the Early Dynastic Period, symbolizing both mortal existence and the afterlife.
On temples walls, in tomb paintings, on columns in the Great Hypostyle Hall at Karnak, painted or chiseled into stone, the ANKH plays an important part.
Today it is still a sign of a long life and a lucky charm, sold everywhere in Egypt. And I think most of us who have been to Egypt did not pass up a chance for a long life and came home with an ANKH
