This is a lovely pendant showing Horus with his open Falcon wings and his feet with Shen talons. The Shen ring is the hieroglyph for 'eternity' and it is the oldest, and first, hieroglyph and was often worn by divine animals such as the falcon/hawk. People also liked to wear the sign of the eternal cycle as an amulet for protection against disease and disaster.
Horus is one of the oldest and most significant deities in the ancient Egyptian religion. He was most often depicted as a falcon or, as a man with a falcon's head. He was said to be the sky and also considered to contain the sun and moon. After Horus's battle with Set, his uncle who murdered Osiris his father and Set's brother, for the throne of Egypt he was chosen to be the ruler of the world of the living. One of the best preserved temples in Egypt today was dedicated to Horus - it is located in Upper Egypt at Edfu.
