The ancient Egyptian hieroglyph known as Ankh symbolizes 'Life' and 'Eternal Life'.

It was one of the most popular and widespread symbols in ancient Egypt and is found repeatedly in their wall art, carvings, pottery and other artifacts.

It was closely associated with their gods, who were often depicted carrying the Ankh by its handle. Ankh is also known by the term 'crux ansata', which is Latin for 'cross with a handle'.

This is a very decorative Ankh; Additional hieroglyphics fill the distinctive cross shape mimicking the carved walls and possessions of a pharaoh's tomb.

The silver hieroglyphics are raised against a blackened background giving it a very vivid, dramatic character. The Eye of Horus is set at the center and two Egyptian vultures sit facing each other from either end of the crosspiece.
