The Egyptian Ankh

A symbol of worship? Or part of an ancient and long-forgotten machine.
Some strange device from an advanced civilization that has long since been swept away by the ravages of time.

This Ankh was a commissioned piece with a very specific brief. The client asked that I use four crystals that hold a very special significance to him.
The piece is made of copper, brass, steel, leather, oak, and crystal. Once finished, the piece was chemically aged and then fully restored and mounted on a clear plexiglass stand to give it a ‘museum exhibit’ feel.
