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.
