The miniature cross dagger is called an Ankh. It is also known as the key of life, the key of the Nile and crux ansata. The Ankh is an ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character meaning life, a trilateral sign for three consonants. The knife component of it is something which it was physically adapted into, the blade does not usually exist as part of the symbol. The Ankh knife featured prominently in one of the film’s main movie posters.
David Bowie said of this film after it was made:
“I must say, there’s nothing that looks like it on the market. But I’m a bit worried that it’s just perversely bloody at some points”.
