Eye of Horus

Eye of Horus

As one of the most famous ancient Egyptian symbols, The eye of Horus has been considered a symbol of protection, victory, and royal power. The ancient egyptians believed that Horus lost his left eye in a struggle with Seth, then Hathor magically helped Horus to restore it, and this restoration came to symbolize the process of making whole and healing. For this reason, the symbol was often used in amulets.
Horus subsequently offered the eye to his deceased father Osiris, and its revivifying power sustained Osiris in the afterlife. The Eye of Horus was thus equated with funerary offerings as well as with all the offerings given to deities in temple ritual. It could also represent other concepts, such as the Moon, whose perceived waxing and waning was likened to the injury and restoration of the eye
