The Vampire Legacy Ankh Ankh is the sigilium which represents culture, traditions which or the "Legacy Projects" which includes Vampire World YouTube Channel, Endless Night Vampire Ball events and the Sabretooth: Custom Made Fangs. This precious artifact proudly worn discretely in public and openly in ceremony by both Sabretooth fang clients and Black Swans. Formally the Vampire Legacy Ankh was consecrated to symbolize the “The Red Veils” which are power words of the "vampire mythos" which include Elegance, Mystery, Romance, Transhumanism, Immortality, Primal Nature, Seduction, Magic and Glamour. The ankh, or in Latin the crux ansata (cross with a handle), was originally the Egyptian hieroglyph which meant "life". Many ancient Egyptian artworks, especially funerary art, depict gods and pharaohs bearing this symbol. The ankh was also associated with Osiris, the god of death and rebirth, and ankhs were often placed with mummies in order to symbolically convey the gift of immortality. Over time the ankh came to symbolize immortality and can even be seen as a key to unlock the gates of death. The Rosicrucians and members of Hermetic orders often use this symbol in their rituals. The Coptic Christians, as well, employed it as a symbol of life after death. Ankhs incorporating mirrors into their design have sometimes been used to symbolize perception of the subtle reality. The bladed ankh first surfaced in popular culture in the 1983 film The Hunger, directed by Tony Scott and based on the novel by Whitley Strieber, who also, significantly, wrote the novel Communion. With its historical symbolism, cultural significance, and esoteric nature, the ankh was the obvious symbol for the Vampyre Culture & Philosophy. In 1996, Master Metal Manipulator Drennan was commissioned by Father Sebastiaan to make an exclusive version of a bladed ankh to represent the virtues of the Legacy. Thus was born the Legacy Ankh, the most recognized international symbol of the Legacy. Since there are so many imitators, the Legacy Ankh is legally copyrighted and trademarked by Father Sebastiaan in order to protect it and to avoid any misuse of the symbol. We wish to make it clear that this particular scimitar-bladed ankh is the exclusive symbol of the Sabretooth clients who find power in Vampire Veils, and should be recognized and respected as such." You can obtain the A Edition of the pewter version of the Legacy Ankh will be made available online to customers of Father Sebastiaan's Sabretooth Fangs. The D Edition will be only made in 50 pieces once per year on special order from the original mold.
