One of the most widely recognized ancient Egyptian symbols, the Eye of Horus still captures our attention and imagination. Known by several names through the ages, it has been called a Wadjet, Wedjat, Udjat… all referring to the Goddess who personified this arresting symbol.
Through varying versions in Egyptian mythology, the symbol has come to represent protection, sacrifice, healing and good health. An abbreviated version of the origination of the Eye of Horus comes to us in the story of Horus and his father Osiris. The god Osiris died, leaving his throne vacant and his sons Set and Horus battled over the throne. Set gouged out Horus’ left eye in the ensuing battle and tore it to pieces. In stepped the Goddess, Hathor, who retrieved the torn pieces and restored the eye. Horus then took his eye and offered it to his dead father Osiris in hopes of resurrecting him …thus forever associating the Eye with sacrifice, healing and protection.
The god, Horus, is often depicted with a falcon head or even as a falcon and the Eye symbol is commonly thought to be fashioned to look like a falcon eye. The lines around the Eye symbol and the teardrop underneath are very similar to those found on a Lanner Falcon. This symbol, commonly emblazoned on the hulls of ancient Egyptian ships, ensures the bearer safe travels, good health and protection.
