The Egyptian Ankh Secrets and techniques
The Egyptian ankh is one of the most widely known symbols of the Egyptian world. It is a hieroglyph that represents eternal life and is seen in many of the tombs in Egypt. Ancient Egyptians would carry it as an amulet, believing it held sacred power to grant strength and well-being in this life and in the next.
It was depicted as a symbol of the resurrection and eternal life
The Ankh is one of the most recognizable symbols from ancient Egypt, known as "the key of life" or the "cross of life", and dating from the Early Dynastic Period (c. 3150 - 2613 BCE). It is a cross with a loop at the top sometimes ornamented with symbols or decorative flourishes but most often simply a plain gold cross. The symbol is an Egyptian hieroglyph for "life" or "breath of life" (`nh = ankh) and, as the Egyptians believed that one's earthly journey was only part of an eternal life, the ankh symbolizes both mortal existence and the afterlife. It is one of the most ancient symbols of Egypt, often seen with the djed and was symbols, carried by a multitude of the Egyptian gods in tomb paintings and inscriptions and worn by Egyptians as an amulet.
Egyptian gods carried the ankh by the loop, or held one in each hand crossed over their breast. Latinists interpreted the symbol as symbol of Eternal Life and Happiness. Shaped like a Cross with a handle . Pharaonic artists would frequently depict various gods or goddesses holding the ankh while touching the dead. The scene symbolized the deity granting eternal life to the deceased.
The precise origin of the symbol remains a mystery to Egyptologists, and no single hypothesis has been widely accepted.
One of the most beautiful Ankh was found in the burial collection of King Tutankhamen. It was actually a mirror designed in the form of a mirror.
The Egyptians loved life and this creative civilization was about life .The Egyptians were totally dominated with life and all positive things that came with it .
The long standing importance of the Egyptian Ankh, and its deep symbolism to the dynastic Egyptians, lead to it being gradually adopted by the very early Christian church in Egypt (which eventually became the Coptic Church). This is highly significant, as it is almost certainly the genesis of the cross, as the central thematic symbol of the Christian religion.
The Ankh symbol often was being used as a Christian talisman. The illustration, here, of a Christian 3th Century bust with a transitional "ankh becoming a cross", was found in the 1960s in the Fayuom ,Egypt, archaeological region. It was often worn as an amulet to extend one's life and placed on the mummy to energize the resurrected spirit.
