Ankh - Key of Life - Celestial Outreach

The Ankh, also known as key of life, the key of the Nile or crux ansata (Latin meaning "cross with a handle"), was the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character that read "life", a triliteral sign for the consonants ꜥ-n-ḫ. It represents the concept of eternal life, which is the general meaning of the symbol. The Egyptian gods are often portrayed carrying it by its loop, or bearing one in each hand, arms crossed over their chest.

The origin of ankh is highly debated and it is represented by an oval or point-down teardrop set atop a T shape. Wikipedia, Ankh (external link)
