Since ancient Egyptian times the Ankh has been the symbol of eternal life both in this world and the otherworld. It is connected with tradition in modern times in that it was adopted as the cross of the Coptic Christians in Egypt.
In many representations the gods are holding an Ankh in their hand or extending it to people. This involves the breath of life made visible and, to some extent, the divine spark through which life can first come into being. It further embodies the life-giving characteristics of the elements air and water. Its origin is not really known but it may involve a magical knot. Another interpretation sees it as a combination of the T-shaped Osiris cross anad the oval of Isis as the key that locks away the secrets of life.
The Lotus Flower is a living symbol of beauty and grace. In the Egyptian Book of the Dead the sun god Ra is the 'youth who came forth from the Lotus'. This plant represents a connection between the divine light and the chaotic darkness. For this reason it is a sign of hope and rebirth which goes very aptly with the meaning of the Ankh.
All my silver Egyptian jewellery is truly authentic as it is made in the Fabrique that I work with in Cairo.
