Eye Of Horus Amulet

The Eye of Horus

Follow Us

Eye of HorusThe Eye of Horus is known by many names: the Eye or Ra, the Eye of Osiris, the Eye of the Moon, or Wedjat.

In fact, Horus and Ra are two references of the same ancient Egyptian deity, while Osiris is Horus' father. Horus (or Ra) was regarded as the Sun god, or the Sky god, and is said in legend to be half man - half falcon. The Eye of Horus is one of ancient Egypt's most popular symbols, and hieroglyphic inscriptions of it are found in many archeological sites across Egypt. For example, several mummy tombs have been found to contain the Eye of Horus hieroglyphs.

Eye of Horus BraceletAncient Egyptians used different Eye of Horus artifacts as a way to protect and guide them in the Afterlife. It is also known as a symbol of protection and healing.

Other uses of the Eye of Horus in ancient Egypt include architecture as well as fashion. Apparently the proportions of the Eye are not coincidental, and were used as a sort of protractor. All the while, ancient Egyptian monarch wore the Eye as a symbol of status and of legitimacy. Modern versions of these charms often display the Eye centered in the middle of a Pyramid, with sunrays radiating from within it upwards.

The teardrop beneath the eye actually belongs to Hathor, Horus' mother, who represents the galaxy itself.

Wearing the Eye of Horus charm is believed for several millenniums to foster protection and wisdom, as well as the ability to separate truth from lies.
