The Ankh was an ancient Egyptian symbol of eternal life and immortality. The word ankh also means "mirror" in the ancient Egyptian language, as in a mirror to the soul. At the top of the ankh shown, there wings of Isis and a solar disk w/cobras. 2 Cobras, representing the goddess of Lower Egypt, are across the bar. At the bottom, King Ankhnaton.
Isis, the main goddess of the Egyptian pantheon, is assoc. w/pharaohs & the Underworld. The throne sign is used in hieroglyphs to represent Isis. She is often associated w/the goddess Hathor, & as such is shown w/cow horns & a sun disk on her head & may have Hathor's sistrum or rattle. The ankh sign may also represent Isis as her girdle
