What does ankh mean in Egyptian?
Answer . Eternal life.. Answer . I believe it means simply "life" which could be temporal or eternal.. It is believed that the heiroglyph originated from an image of t…he female reproductive system.. Addendum: While the Ankh in its simplest meaning means "life" (specifically, "eternal life"), and may or may not thus be connected with the female reproductive system (as in the later symbol for female), it was moreover to them the symbolic "key" to opening the door between the Ka (Kah) & the Ba (Bah), i.e., the Spiritual & Physical Worlds... A type of amulet, and the symbol of life, shaped as a cross with a loop on top.
It was found about 340 years ago in Egypt.
An ankh is a cross shaped like a T with a loop at the top, representing the Egyptian hieroglyph for "life", and often used as an amulet.
Life.. Ankh, The Symbol of Life or eternal
The sun and its life-giving rays. **************************************************************** The ancient symbol of the Sun is the Hindu Swastica or Fire Wheel. This s…ymbol became abreviated when it was made into a medalion consisting of an 'X' inside a circle. The Sun was thought to decend into the Earth at night and then arise reborn from Earth each morning. The Ankh evolved to show this. Here the circle becomes a womb-like elipse illustrating the Solar cross being reborn inside the Earth. The ankh is an Egyptian hieroglyph meaning life , i t is also known as the Egyptian Cross and the key of life. The ankh symbolises life and immortality, the universe, power and life-giving air and water. Its key-like shape has also encouraged the belief it could unlock the gates of death, and it is viewed this way by the modern Rosicrucians and other hermetic orders. The ankh appears frequently in Egyptian tomb paintings and other art; it often appears at the fingertips of a god or goddess in images that represent the deities of the afterlife conferring the gift of life on the dead person's mummy. The ankh symbol was often carried by Egyptians as an amulet, either alone, or in connection with two other hieroglyphs that mean "strength" and "health." Mirrors were often made in the shape of an ankh. Sometimes, in art, the Ankh was shown being touched by a god onto a person, which usually symbolized conception.
A cross with an oval shape on the top is an ankh. - [angk] The Ankh Cross represents life (immortality) and death, male and female, balance. It can also represent zest, joy of… life, and energy. It's closely related to the looped cross that can mean fertility and life.
No, they made wood ankh's.
Ancient Egyptians held the Ankh because it symbolized life (immortality) and death, male and female, balance . It can also represent zest, joy of life, and energy.
could imply some relationship with aviation, Air Force chaplain, perhaps? has nothing to do with that. an ankh is a symbol for eternal life. The wings, depending on the wi…ngs, mean different things. I have the Egyptian wings with my ankh and they are the wings of horus. Ankh with wings in general means "Battered but still standing"

Yes. This symbol represented life.
inx (often called ankh today) is a hieroglyph meaning life or living. It is a symbol often depicted as if three-dimensional but its origins are as a two-dimensional written c…haracter. In that sense it has no specific size, in exactly the same way as the English letter C - it is as big as you want to write it, but it can be represented very large and three-dimensionally on advertising or shop names. The inx character was sometimes made into an amulet or magical protective symbol; these could again be any size from tiny to quite large, but generally a size that could be held comfortably in one hand (perhaps 8 inches or 20 cms tall).
no, not all Egyptian gods hold the ankh but many are depicted with the ankh, since the ankh represented eternal life set (or seth: god of evil chaos and disorder) was not usua…lly depicted with the ankh
It says egyptians are pooiebums!
