Sacred symbol moulds

Ying Yang

Origin: Chinese culture

The Chinese 'Ying and Yang' symbol might be the most famous symbol in this article. The symbol refers to two opposing principles or forces that permeate all aspects of life and the universe. The 'Ying Yang' symbol is an ancient Chinese representation of cosmic duality. Here, 'Yin' symbolises femininity (earth, cold, north, humidity) and 'Yang' masculinity (sky, heat, south, dryness). However, they are not mere opposites, but mainly values that complement each other.

The 'Ankh symbol' is one of the most recognisable symbols from ancient Egypt. Also known as the 'cross of life' or 'the key of life', the symbol dates back to the Early Dynastic Period, from about 3150 - 2613 BC.

The cross is often depicted as a simple and plain gold cross with a loop at the top. As an Egyptian hieroglyph, it is translated as "life" or "breath of life". The Egyptians believed that their time here on earth was only part of a larger, even infinite life. The Ankh symbolises both the afterlife and mortal existence on earth.
