This wooden cherry Ankh stands 13 1/2 inches tall and is 6 3/4 at its widest and is a nice 3/4 of an inch thick. Hang on your wall or use at an altar.
The ankh is the ancient Egyptian symbol of eternal life. According to The Egyptian Book of Living and Dying, the ankh is representative of the key to life.
One theory is that the loop at the top symbolizes the rising sun, the horizontal bar represents feminine energy, and the vertical bar indicates masculine energy. Together they combine to form a symbol of fertility and power. Other ideas are far more simple – that the ankh is a representation of a sandal strap.
