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" , 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. The Ankh's association with the afterlife made it an especially potent symbol for the Coptic Christians of Egypt in the 4th century CE who took it as their own. This use of the Ankh as a symbol of Christ's promise of everlasting life through belief in his sacrifice and resurrection is most probably the origin of the Christian use of the cross as a symbol of faith today. The early Christians of Rome and elsewhere used the fertility symbol of the fish as a sign of their faith. They would not have considered using the image of the cross, a well-known form of execution, any more than someone today would choose to wear an amulet of an electric chair. The Ankh, already established as a symbol of eternal life, leant itself easily to assimilation into the early Christian faith and continued as that religion's symbol.Height : 29.5.cm / 11.61 inchWidth : 14.5.cm / 5.70 inchColor: As Shown In Pictures Payment : We Accept PayPalShipment : DHL fast Shipping 4-12 days with track number - We Only Depend on the EXPRESS SHIPPING.COMBINED SHIPPING : We Offer Combined Shipping To Save Your Money You Pay 100% Of High Shipping cost for one item and the Second Only 50% of the shipping cost And Third Only 30 % of the shipping cost after that get it with free shipping.Returns : We refund you money after your return the piece at the same condition as shipped .Region : EGYPT Condition: As Shown In Pictures - Perfect Condition, Provenance: Luxor Egypt, Material: Stone
