was sacred to the ancient Egyptians and is known as the original cross. This symbol stands for life or living, and forms part of the Egyptian words such as ‘health’ and ‘happiness.’ It is linked with the Egyptian God Osiris and the Goddess Isis (the eternal mother and High Priestess who carries the Ankh in Her hand).
Kings and Pharoahs are also oftentimes shown with an Ankh to distinguish them from “mere mortals.” The loop of the Ankh (which represents the womb, the feminine discipline) is considered to be the feminine, and the “T” shape is considered to be the masculine (the masculine discipline). Together, these symbols create life and reflect a continued existence. It is sometimes called the Key of the Nile (the river that provided water for Egypt to survive – the Ankh is often associated with water, air, and the sun rising over the horizon) which further reinforces the image of fertility and reproduction.Details:
