The Ankh Cross represents life (immortality) and death, male and female, balance. It can also represent zest, joy of life, and energy. It’s closely related to the looped cross that can mean fertility and life.
We at Loc’d Life Magazine (www.locdlife.com) love this symbol. We’ve seen the Ankh in jewelry, in tattoos, in clothing, and other forms of self-expression. What better way to express yourself than with jeweled accessories and other adornments for your locs and accessories. Here is how to bring symbolic “life” to and through your locs….
