Egyptian jewellery double Ankh with scarab 925 silver
Double Ankh with scarabThe Ankh or Anch, hieroglyph of the Egyptian word "life" was a popular amulet and symbol of the eternal life in graves of the deceased. The Coptic Christians, which later were looking fo refuge in the graves, interpreted various hundreds or even thousands of years later the cross wrongly as a Christian symbol. The scarab bug, or called dung beetle was admired as "Cheper" nearly to cultic in the Ancient Egypt. Its characteristic, rolling a ball of dung behind it, was connected to the path of the sun and the sun bark of Re. As the symbol of resurrection and general lucky charm as well it was worn as an amulet.
Under the symbol there is a stylised reed boat, on top leafs of lotus.
