<p>A simple, striking pendant featuring the Ancient Egyptian symbol of life. Polished pewter on a 30cm cord. Pendant is 5.5 cm high. <br /> <br /> 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. <br /> <br /> The necklace has been designed exclusively for the British Museum.</p>

Exclusive to the British Museum, a necklace featuring an ancient Egyptian ankh.

This ankh pendant is crafted of polished pewter, and is suspended on a tie cord.

The ankh is the ancient Egyptian symbol for ‘life’. This piece has been inspired by the hieroglyphic inscription found carved onto a limestone slab, now housed in the British Museum’s department of Egypt and Sudan. The limestone bears the name and titles of Amenemhat III, who ruled during the 12th Dynasty, about 1825 BC. It is thought that the original pictorial symbol represented the tie straps of a sandal, or possibly a mirror in its case.

A charming gift inspired by ancient Egyptian design.
