The Ankh is one of the great symbols that we have coming down to us from antiquity. The Ankh was (is) the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character that reads “life”. Or perhaps more accurately the concept of eternal life. Life! Live it! My version of it would suggest a life burning with intensity. This is a lovely free form image to batik. The form of the ankh comes from a copy I made of an ankh drawn on my wall by an old friend, Jessica Coville.
The following Ankh was an earlier form for me that I didn’t like nearly as good as the previous one.
