An Egyptian ankh necklace
The ankh (the symbol "☥") is an Egyptian hieroglyph meaning "life", a symbol widely used in the iconography of this culture. The ankh is also called the "key of life" to remind its link with the life offered by the supreme deity Amun-Ra to all humans.
A pendant from ancient Egypt
Egyptians traded with their neighbours to obtain exotic and rare products that cannot be found in Egypt. In the Predynastic period, they established a trade route with Nubia to obtain gold and frankincense.
The Egyptian pharaohs also established trade links with Palestine, as evidenced by the Palestinian-style jugs found in the tombs of the pharaohs of the First Dynasty. The first pharaoh Narmer also possessed Egyptian ceramics produced in the land of Canaan and exported to Egypt.
