The Ankh literally means

The #Ankh literally means “Life” but interestingly enough, the symbol represents “family”. The circle portion is woman. The lower part is man. Their union produces the cross section which represents the children (boy & girl). The Ankh is one of the most sacred symbols on earth.

“…Of course, there are a host of other human fossils that existed thousands of years ago all over Africa; but you can’t find one “Adam” or one “Eve” in any part of Asia. But we have to go beyond that. We can look at the artifacts before writing came into being. We will then be in archaeological finds along the Nile. Also you would find that there were two groups of Africans; one called “Hutu,” and one called “Twa.” The Twa and Hutu take us back into at least 400,000 B.C.E. (Before the Common “Christian” Era) in terms of artifacts. The most ancient of these artifacts, one of the most important in Egypt, is called the “Ankh,” which the Christians adopted and called the “Crux Ansata” or “Ansata Cross.” The Ankh was there amongst these people, equally the “Crook” and “Flail.” All of these symbols came down to us from the Twa and Hutu…” ~ Dr. Yosef A.A. Ben-Jochannan
