Eyes of Horus
Eyes of Horus
The Udjat is the scared eye of Horus, falcon god of Egypt. Egyptian mythology states that Horus lost his left eye in his war with Seth to avenge his father's death. Seth tore the eye into pieces. The eyepieces were discovered by Thoth (the god of wisdom and magic) who was able to reassemble them into a full moon. Thoth returned the eye to Horus who, in turn, gave the eye to his murdered father Osiris, thereby bringing him back to life. The symbol of the udjat was believed to ward off sickness and bad luck and be capable of bringing the dead to life. Slate. Egyptian. 6.25 x 3.75 x .5 inches
