Ancient Egypt's hieroglyphic ankh originally symbolized regeneration before it absorbed the more Christian association of eternal life.
The ancient Egyptian obsession with the afterlife is also quite intriguing, filled with magical amulets like the Ankh and the scarab.
The emblems in the suit of swords are based on the Egyptian crux ansata (a symbol more commonly known as the ankh and looped cross).
Among the vast amounts of mythology associated with the ankh are regeneration, eternal life, conception, strength and health.
He has the head of a jackal, a man's body, carries a stick and an ankh, and symbolizes protection from death.
The Ankh is an ancient Egyptian symbol that represents eternal life.
My mother surprised me with a necklace decorate with an Ankh charm.
Reliefs in ancient Egyptian temples show the Ankh being presented to the king by the gods.
The Ankh looks similar to a cross, and is sometimes called the cross with a handle, but has a different symbolism.
Remains of sculpture, engraved bronzes and gems, show clearly the source to which the Phoenician artists went for inspiration; for example, the uraeus-frieze and the winged disk, the ankh or symbol of life, are Egyptian designs frequently imitated.
