The ankh is an ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic symbol that was most commonly used in writing and in Egyptian art to represent the word for "life" and, by extension, as a symbol of life itself. The ankh has a cross shape but with an oval loop in place of an upper bar.
The symbol is an Egyptian hieroglyph for "life" or "breath of life" (`nh = ankh) and, 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 was held in the hands of the gods as a symbol of their power to give life or take it away. The symbol of the ankh meant “life” and was often used as an amulet, as a symbolic representation of both physical and eternal life. The Ankh symbolized life, immortality and reincarnation.
