A lovely silver Eye of Horus pendant. Since Horus was said to the the sky - he was considered to also contain the sun and moon. It became said that the sun was his right eye and the moon his left and that they traversed the sky when he, as a falcon, flew across it. After Osiris, his father, was murdered by his brother Set; Horus fought with Set for the throne of Egypt. In this fight Horus lost his left eye. However a new eye was created for him by part of Khonsu, the moon god, and was thus replaced. This is why the moon is not as bright as the sun.
The Eye of Horus is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power from the deities and in the Ancient Egyptian language the name for this is 'Wedjat' a solar deity whose symbol was an eye. 'Wedjat' was intended to protect the king in the afterlife and to ward off evil.
All my silver Egyptian jewellery is truly authentic as I purchase it from manufacturers in Cairo. I choose each item individually and with great care. It is all hallmarked.
