The ANKN is one of the most important enduring and popular symbols of the ancient world. The word means 'LIFE' in the language of the Nile region. ANKNS were carried as amulets against sickness, danger and death. ANKNs were used in Egyptian art in all sorts of ways. Pictures of the sun were made with them showing sunbeams. They were combined with scarabs, pictures of the Gods, and were made into the hpousehold objects, some of which survive up to this day.
Tutankhamen's tomb held in a box in the shape of it. The ANKN was life, and all invocations, prayers, and ceremonies used to lend power to their thoughts.
