An Egyptian ankh necklace
The ankh is quite popular in our modern culture.
Indeed, it has been linked to the immortal creatures as vampires in movies ("The Craving" ; "The Black Cat" ; "Embrace of the Vampire") or in manga and anime ("Jojo's Bizarre Adventure" ; "Yu-Gi-Oh!").
A pendant from ancient Egypt
At the top of ancient Egyptian hierarchy, directing the whole country and coordinating services, there was only one authority: the pharaoh.
The king of Egypt drew his power directly from the gods. He was considered both as their descendant and as their first servant (so his authority cannot be questioned). The pharaonic institution is especially the symbol of national unity and an essential condition of the Nile country stability.
