The Amulet of the Ankh

The Amulet of the Ankh
The ankh was one of the most distributive hieroglyphic symbolic representations in ancient Egyptian art. Formed like a capital letter T with an inverted teardrop atop it, the ankh is really  a  combination  of  2  other  hieroglyphic symbolizations: those of air and water. Hence, the ankh presented life, because the ancient Egyptians thought that air and water were the 2 elements necessary to create life. The ankh was besides the symbol for the giving of life, which is why when Felis concolor in ancient Egypt shown a man taking an ankh up to a womans nose and frailty versa, that act typified a fertile sexual organized.

Ankhs  most  typically  come out  on amulets and other bits of jewelry intended to as if by magic confer long life on the wearer. When got on royal necklaces, bracelets, and other pieces, the ankh is often in the society of two other symbols, djed and was, with their one meaning being life, constancy, and power. The ankh was also large in rituals related to royal cults as well as to the gods Isis and Osiris, start in the Early Dynastic Period. In addition, ankhs appeared on coffin medals and on furniture and other targets found in royal tombs.
