Eye of Horus

Ancient Egyptians believed the Eye of Horus (also known as the Egyptian Eye) to be symbolic of protection in the afterlife. According to Egyptian mythology, Horus lost his eye in a struggle with Seth, which was later magically restored by Hathor. The eye was personified as the goddess Wadjet. The “all-seeing eye” symbol is commonly used in ancient Egyptian jewellery such as faience amulets to bring health, wisdom and prosperity to the bearer.
