Small Brass Ankh

Made from polished brass, small ankhs such as these, otherwise referred to as the 'Key of the Nile' have been popular since the times of Ancient Egypt; an important symbol of life.

Ankhs are often shown in the hands of important Egyptian figures, such as pharaohs and kings, preserving their immortality. Moreover, the ankh is commonly depicted in temples and in the grasp of major Egyptian gods such as Osiris, Isis, and Ra. It could also have a more physical connotation: the ankh may represent water, air, and the sun, which were meant to provide and preserve life in Ancient Egyptian culture. Additionally, ankhs were traditionally placed in sarcophagi to ensure life after death.
