The Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) symbol of Eternal Life, the Ankh has become a well recognized symbol globally. Like the Christian crucifix, it initially denoted a spiritual or religious sign with an intrinsic and esoteric meaning, but it has gradually become a kind of fashionable symbol. Some people just like the shape so they create various ornaments and design jewellery and clothing emblazoned with the Ankh. So it has acquired multiple uses in modern times. Yet its semiotic link to a revival of Afrocentric values endures.
As a creative design business, Green Ankh Works (PTY) LTD has chosen to use the shape of the Ankh with added blooming leaves in order to symbolize perpetual growth. It is a Tree with potential to bear good fruit. It also depicts two branches (Creative Forces) meeting.
While most Ankhs are stylized and hardly venture away from the Ancient Egyptian look, our Green Ankh speaks of the current trends towards Environmental Awareness, Multidisciplinary approaches to organisation building, business, the Arts and ideas.
Green Ankh Works simply means The WORKS OF NATURE (NETER) ARE UNLIMITED.
