Lakota symbol with Ankh

The Lakota symbol with the seed of life below and the Ankh symbol of eternal life above.

The Lakota symbol originates from a Native American tribe of the same name. The lower triangle pointing up is the earth while the triangle pointing down are the stars and the sun. The earth mirrors the heavens above, but to travel from one to the other requires you to pass through a single point. It reminds me of the biblical 'eye of a needle', where we have to leave all our earthly attachments in order to pass through.

The ankh symbol, placed in the top triangle, is often referred to as the key of life and represents eternal life.
