Hannibal Barca was a Carthaginian general, considered one of the greatest military commanders in history. One of his most famous achievements was at the outbreak of the Second Punic War, when he marched an army which included war elephants from Iberia over the Pyrenees and the Alps into Italy.

The Mannequin challenge is nothing new, It's been going on for centuries! This is a fun historical take on the Mannequin challenge. The design looks like an etching or pen & ink drawing, and is based on ancient Roman mythology showing a bas relief frieze sculpture of men and women (Gods and Goddesses?) with dogs and horses on a wild boar pig hunt. Great T-shirt gift for the history buff or hunter! A royal purple Roman border goes around the main design with Roman chiseled style lettering. Makes a great gift for a Birthday, Christmas gift or stocking stuffer!

It represents the concept of eternal life, which is the general meaning of the symbol.  The Egyptian gods are often portrayed carrying it by its loop, or bearing one in each hand, arms crossed over their chest. The ankh appears in hand or in proximity of almost every deity in the Egyptian pantheon (including Pharaohs). Thus it is fairly and widely understood as a symbol of early religious pluralism: all sects believed in a common story of eternal life, and this is the literal meaning of the symbol. This rationale contributed to the adoption of the ankh by New Age mysticism in the 1960s, to mean essentially the same tolerance of diversity of belief and common ethics as in Ancient Egypt.
