Gold Leaf Egyptian Key of Life Ankh statue wicca pagan



High Quality GOLD LEAF finishing

Stands 7.25 inches high

Egyptian hieroglyphic character that stood for the Egyptian word "life". Egyptian gods are often portrayed carrying it by its loop, or bearing one in each hand, arms crossed over their chest. It is also known as the Egyptian Cross, the key of life, or as crux ansata, Latin for "cross with a handle". It has been taken as a symbol by many Neopagans
Over time, the ankh has come to symbolize life and immortality, the universe, power and life-giving air and water. Its key like shape has also encouraged the belief it could unlock the gates of death, and it is viewed this way by the modern Rosicrucian and other hermetic orders. The Coptic Christians have used it as a symbol of life after death
The ankh appears frequently in Egyptian tomb paintings and other art, often at the fingertips of a god or goddess in images that represent the deities of the afterlife conferring the gift of life on the dead person's mummy; this is thought to symbolize the act of conception. Additionally, an ankh was often carried by Egyptians as an amulet, either alone, or in connection with two other hieroglyphs that mean "strength" and "health". Mirrors of beaten metal were also often made in the shape of an ankh, either for decorative reasons or to symbolize a perceived view into another world.
The ankh was almost never drawn in silver; as a sun-symbol, the Egyptians almost invariably crafted important examples of it (for tombs or other purposes) from the metal they most associated with the sun, gold. A similar metal such as copper, burnished to a high sheen, was also sometimes used.
