An “Ankh” is a symbol associated with ancient Egyptian culture. This picture shows a drawing of an Ankh.
According to Happeh Theory, an Ankh is a representation of a human body. The top of the Ankh is equivalent to the head,
the extension protruding out to either side of the Ankh are the arms,
and the bottom part of the Ankh represents the torso and legs.
A close inspection of the top of this particular Ankh,
reveals it also has a face on it. There are two eyes,
and a mouth.
Ancient Egyptian culture was associated with mysticism and religion. It is intriguing to note there is a circular object on the Ankh,
that is located where the mystical “third eye” of a human being is reputed to be.
The Ankh is also a representation of one aspect of the deep level construction of the human body.
The human body is constructed completely from spirals. While it might seem that the head of the Ankh is created from an ellipse with a gap in it,
the head of the Ankh is actually the loop of a spiral.
The next picture shows the complete enclosed path of the spiral over the entire body.
If you have trouble figuring out the path of the complete spiral, here is one possible sequence that will produce the complete enclosed body spiral.
From the bottom of the left arm and completely around the head to the left shoulder,
then under the right arm and over the top of the right arm to the left side of the body and down the outer left side of the body,
then finally up the outer right leg over to the right shoulder where it travels over the top of the left arm to meet the first spirals starting point.
The following picture shows an alternative set of spirals in the same general shape as the human body and the Ankh.
