Silver ankh pendant (British Museum exclusive)

    SKU: cmcj72330

    £25.00 Members' price *


    The ankh symbol means 'living' or 'life'. The design used for the jewellery is based on the hieroglyphic inscription carved on a limestone slab in the Department of Egyptian Antiquities bearing the names and titles of Ammenemes III, 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.
