  • Model AI.driana is wearing the Legacy Ankh "D" in Rhodium Protected Silver

    Endless Night Vamporium For Sabretooth Members Only - First Generation Legacy Ankh “D” Edition

    Only 50 pieces of this original artifact of Vampire Lore will be available in 2024. The "D" Edition (designed by P.N. D'Drennan) which was designed during the early years of the Sabretooth Clan from 1996-7. Commissioned by Father Sebastiaan from D'Drennan exclusively for his fang clients is a rare collectors edition only made in sterling silver and measures about 3 inches long. Only those who are personally approved by Father Sebastiaan, most notably select personal fang clients. The Ankh 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, also 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 appeared in popular culture in the 1983 film The Hunger, based on the vampire novel by Whitley Strieber and directed by Tony Scott. With its historical symbolism, cultural significance, and esoteric nature, the bladed ankh was the obvious and most common symbol for the Vampire.   The Legacy Ankh The Legacy Ankh is a special version of the bladed ankh and is the sigilium which represents the virtues, teachings, traditions, culture and philosophy known as the Black Veils.  Some of the Black Veils include virtues like Immortality, Romance, Elegance, Seduction, Apotheosis, Music, Art, Decadance, Nightside, Dayside, Unity, Family, Magick, Dance, Civility, Hospitality, Honor, Diversity, Chivalry, Decadance and Xepher.  In 1996, Master Metal Manipulator D’Drennan was commissioned by Father Sebastiaan to make an exclusive version of a bladed ankh to represent the Black Veils and the Legacy.  Thus was born the Legacy Ankh, the most recognized international symbol in the Vampyre / Vampire Community.

Similarly, the Egyptians attributed the warm golden hue of topaz to the Sun God - Ra, making it a symbol of strength and protection. During the Medieval period, people even believed that wearing a topaz amulet on the left arm could ward off dark magic. Furthermore, topaz was thought to have healing properties, such as relieving arthritis pain, aiding in digestion and weight loss, and attracting love. In fact, some people believed that consuming a potion made with topaz could protect against and cure a wide range of illnesses.
