An ancient Egyptian protection symbol associated with royal power from gods. Some modern rituals use the Eye to channel prosperity, health and regeneration.
Horus is a sky god and is often depicted with the head of a falcon. The Eye of Horus is commonly shown as a right eye with a tear drop below and, together, they symbolise the sun and Isis. The left eye and teardrop is more usually shown to represent the moon as Thoth.
In some Egyptian mythologies Horus lost his left eye to Seth in a fight over the murder of Osiris. Seth lost the fight and Thoth, the god of writing, was able to use magic to restore Horus’ eye.
The design of the Eye of Horus is fractional – parts of the image represent different fractions.
