What is the Ankh?

The Ankh is the symbol of life according to the beliefs of the Kemites (Kems) of ancient Afrika. Known as “the key of life” or the “cross of life”, it dates from the Early Dynastic Period (c. 3150 – 2613 BCE).

It is one of the most recognizable yet misunderstood symbols in all the world. The Ankh is described by some as the Egyptian Cross, despite the fact that it pre dates both Egypt and the cross itself by several thousand years.

The symbol is a hieroglyph for “life” or “breath of life” (`nh = ankh) and, as the Kemites believed that one’s earthly journey was only part of an eternal life, the ankh symbolizes both mortal existence and the afterlife. It is one of the most ancient symbols of Kemite, often seen with the djed and was symbols, carried by a multitude of the Kemetic gods in tomb paintings and inscriptions and worn by Kem as an amulet.
