Pendant of the cross of anj, also known as the Egyptian cross and cross of life. It is made in sterling silver with an aged silver finish. Made in Galicia.
For the Egyptians death was not the end, but a transition to eternal life and therefore, when a person died complex funeral rituals were performed in which amulets were placed that helped the deceased have a good path to eternal life. It is precisely the cross of anj that was placed on the lips of the dead since it was considered as a kind of key with which the dead could open the doors to reach eternal life, which is why this amulet is also known as the cross of life.
