Ankh Pewter Pendant

This Ankh pewter pendant features the Winged Solar Disk is approximately 1/2 inch in diameter and comes on a story card with a 33 inch long black cord and is available in either a pewter or antique brass finish.

The Ankh is an ancient Egyptian symbol that is formed by an oval or point-down teardrop set atop a T shape and is known as key of life, the key of the Nile or crux ansata. A hieroglyphic character that represents the concept of eternal life. The Egyptian gods are often portrayed carrying it by its loop, or bearing one in each hand, arms crossed over their chest.

The Winged Solar Disk is one of the oldest Egyptian icons and symbols that appeared as early as the Old Kingdom. It is usually a symbol of royalty, divinity and power the soul and its eternity it was often placed in temples as a memento to the people of their eternal nature. During the Middle Kingdom, it evolved into a symbol of protection and became a popular protective amulet during the Ptolemaic Period.

The Winged Solar Disk has been connected with the sun god, Ra. However, it has been known as the Behdety, an ancient god which was later assimilated by Horus and became the Horus of Behdet. It is said that this is the form that the god Horus takes when in flight towards battle with the goddesses Nekhbet and Uazet in the form of uraeus snakes joining him at his side.

Material
Pewter Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, traditionally 85–99% tin, with the remainder consisting of copper and other metals. It has a low melting point and is very easy to cast in molds. It has been used since ancient times for everything from jewelry to table wear and was once called the "poor mans silver". Generally pewter has a grayish/silver semi-dull finish, though this varies depending on the metals combined with the tin and can be colored black or other shades or plated with gold or silver. Pewter is generally hypo-allergenic and will not tarnish or react in most conditions. Note it can break or crack if flexed multiple times and rings cannot be re-sized, though interior ring springs or other adjusters might be used.
