Cleopatra on Egyptian museum entrance

Cleopatra on Egyptian museum entrance- Last of the Greek Ptolemaic Dynasty in Egypt. < One of my favourite images of ancient Egypt. We are fortunate to have art treasures like this after the passage of so many centuries.

Only Egyptian Kings, Queens and Gods were allowed to carry this symbol. The ankh is the Egyptian sign of life and indicates that the King or God holding it has the power to give life or take it away from lesser mortals.

oh you lesser mortals. Only Egyptian Kings, Queens and Gods were allowed to carry this symbol. The Ankh is the Egyptian sign of life and indicates that the King or God holding it has the power to give life or take it away from lesser mortals.
