The Eye of Horus was intimately associated with the Egyptian Sky God Horus and was often used as a symbol of divine protection, sacrifice, healing and restoration.
Symbolizing eternal life and rebirth, scarab beetles held great religious power and protective abilities. Kephri, the scarab-headed god, rolled the sun across the sky each day, where it died at night and was reborn in the morning. Scarabs also embodied the cycle of creation due to the 'magical' way the beetles produce offspring.
The ankh is an ancient Egyptian symbol of life. Also known as an Ansata (latin; handle) cross, it is a visual representation of a sandal strap. The horizontal and vertical bars of the lower tau cross represent the feminine and masculine energy, respectively. This combination of male and female symbols in the ankh suggest fertility and creative power. The top loop also symbolizes the sun on the horizon, and suggests reincarnation and rebirth.
