Beautifull curved mayan inspired earrings combined with 3 ankh's.
The Aztecs and the Egyptians were parallel civilizations in many ways, despite having evolved on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean. Both cultures built pyramids, both used solar symbolism, and both believed in life after death, preparing their dead for a journey to the afterlife via an elaborate and highly-ritualistic ceremony.
Both cultures also used a very similar “tau” cross symbol―for the very same purpose: To signify the forces and interplay between physical life (which they saw as temporary, material) and spiritual life (which they saw as eternal, spiritual).
In Egypt, this cross was called “ankh,” which was formed by a “tau” cross (looks like the letter “T”) with a loop on top of it.
In Mexico, the Aztecs and Mayas used the same exact “tau” cross, only with no loop.
“The Tau cross was common enough in Egyptian symbolism that it has sometimes also been called the Egyptian cross…The Spanish conquistadors found the cross to be well known as a symbol by the Incas, and Aztecs…”
― Geoffrey W. Bromiley, International Standard Bible Encyclopedia: A-D
“The Egyptian Tau―the sign of life―also occurs on Central American monuments…”
―Robert S. Littell, The Living Age
