Sterling silver Ankh pendant
The Egyptian cross, also known as Ankh, has been interpreted/thought to be an Egyptian hieroglyph used to represent the word “life”. This cross is primarily known as the symbol of life.
It was placed on the lips of dead kings, bearing in mind that according to the mentality of ancient Egypt, death did not mean the end, but was merely a transition to the afterlife, to eternal life.
Throughout history, the Ankh, and its variations have been given different meanings and interpretations based on different cultures and religions.
Among the Egyptians, it was mainly a symbol of life or immortality.
The symbol of the Ankh has also been interpreted as a symbol of balance between opposing forces, for example, between masculinity and femininity. It can also represent joy, energy, and fertility.
There is another theory, which related the T, of the lower part of the cross, with male sexual attributes, while the upper part, the handle of the cross, the uterus or the woman’s pubis, symbolizing the reconciliation of the opposites, unity between both sexes and above all, reproduction and therefore, the cycle of life.
