Shape of an Ankh but with arms folded in a knot to the sides. Loop at the top for suspension.
This sign is also called Tet by the ancient Egyptians. It resembles the Ankh except that the arms are folded downwards. When combined the two symbols alluded, via Isis and Osiris, to the unity of two opposing world forces and with that to the unconquerable nature of life.
