Ankh pendant (British Museum exclusive)

    SKU: cmcj59660

    £12.99 Members' price *


    A simple, striking pendant featuring the Ancient Egyptian symbol of life. Polished pewter on a 30cm cord. Pendant is 5.5 cm high.

    The Ankh symbol means 'living' or 'life'. The design used for this jewellery is based on the hieroglyphic inscription carved on a limestone slab in the Department of Egyptian Antiquities at the British Museum bearing the names and titles of Ammenemes III (a king), 12th Dynasty, about 1825 BC. It is thought that pictorially the sign originally represented the tie straps of a sandal or possibly a mirror in its case.

    The necklace has been designed exclusively for the British Museum.
