An Egyptian ankh necklace
The meanings of the ankh as a sign are vague and controversial. The protective symbol ankh is today considered as symbolizing life, immortality, eternity and wisdom.
However, the main role of the ankh is to symbolize eternal life offered to Egyptians by the gods of the Nile Valley. In ancient Egyptian walls of monuments, we can frequently see the gods bringing the ankh to the nose of the pharaohs (as a gift of "the breath of eternal life").
A pendant from ancient Egypt
It was around the beginning of the Neolithic period that tribes began to gather in the fertile Nile Valley. This passage of Egyptian history resulted in the formation of two politically distinct but closely related kingdoms with a common culture: Upper Egypt in the south and Lower Egypt in the north (the Nile flows from south to north, which explains these names).
In 3100 BC, the southern kingdom led by Narmer unified the country: the first pharaoh of Egypt was born.
