Meaning of the Ankh

The ankh is an Ancient Egyptian symbol that means LIFE; this powerful symbol was first created by Africans found on the walls of hieroglyphics in Kemet now known as Egypt.

The ankh represents the divine power of life that permeates the universe.

The ankh is the fusion between male and female energies symbolizing completion and fertility. The loop of the ankh represents femininity or the womb while the elongated part of the ankh represents masculinity or the phallus. When these two sacred units combine, new LIFE is created.
