In Ancient Kemet (the land of the black) later renamed Egypt by the Greeks, the ankh was known as the symbol of life and fertility, both to give and sustain, as well as the afterlife. The ankh has also been associated with material things such as water, air, sun and also the gods and kings.
Ancient Egyptian Kings were seen holding and being given ankhs. The ankh amulet was worn to extend the life of the living and placed on a mummy to energise the resurrected spirit.
The loop can also represent eternal life and the cross below the material plane. Looking like a key it is said to be the key to eternal life after death. The ankh is often set in the same category as the Girdle of Isis, as a symbol of eternity. This is not because its straight lines may be lengthened in the imagination to infinity, but because they converge upon and meet in a closed loop. This loop symbolizes the inexhaustible essence of the life force identified with isis, from whom life flows in all its forms. it is therefore carried by all those who wish to share her life. Hence the ankh may be identified with the Tree of Life, with its trunk and foliage.
