Symbol of life
The Egyptian Ankh cross was a popular amulet and symbol of eternal life. The Ankh or as well called Anch is the hieroglyph for the Egyptian word of "life". Often it was put into the graves of deceased, so that to them an eternal life in the next world was guaranteed. Coptic christians seeking for refuge in the graves later interpreted the cross wrongly as christian symbol hundreds and even thousands of years later.
The pendant is fabricated out of real 925 silver in Germany. In a small manufactory every piece is casted and polished one by one by an expert. The pendant is delivered with simple leather strap, that underlines the jewellery's quality even more.
The Ankh cross is a wonderful present, because it was an amulet of protection for Egyptian pharaohs and priests, too. The symbol already was found in the temple of Sakara, which is one of the oldest and best maintained of Egyptian history. So already in the time o the pyramids of Dyoser, around 2650 BC it gave protection to the Egypts!
In Abu Simbel still today the portal of temple in honour of the sun's god Rearchate is opened with a key of the form of that cross. The naturally magical aura is a phenomenon and the original symbol decorative around the neck: The cross of life, the cross of rebirth. It is the symbol of the becoming and the dying. Its profound meaning is vitality.
Akasa, Akascha by the way means the "world's memory". So the filigree handmade cross symbolises the eternal life and never ending power.
