The ankh is an ancient Egyptian hieroglyph or symbol known as the cross of life or key of life. The Ankh is hieroglyph, meaning Life | It is a prominent feature amongst Egyptian art & reliefs, funerary paraphernalia. The Ankh is similar in shape to a key & it represented the key to the gates of death and what lay beyond  | The symbol was portrayed on amulets, with the Djed (meaning stability) or Was (meaning strength) – symbols which were said to provide the protection of the gods to the wearer | Gods and kings are frequently depicted holding the ankh to show their immortality and command over life and death |






| Modern Symbolism | The symbol is used by modern Pagans as a symbol of faith, in healing and to promote psychic communication. It is viewed as a symbol of life by various new age religions. Thelemites, followers of the religion created by Aleister Crowley, also make use of the ankh as a union of opposites, a symbol of advancing one’s destiny or of divinity
