Amulets like this, measuring less than a centimeter up to a few centimeters, are frequently encountered, but in this size they are very rare. The eye was made of faience in a very warm, deep blue colour, that symbolised the heavens and the cosmic waters. Although some discoloration has occurred with age and some encrustation is present, much of the original color is still visible.cThe eye, believed to belong to the falcon-headed god Horus and referred to as the wedjat or udjat eye (meaning "the sound eye"), was a very popular and powerful amulet in ancient Egypt; Andrews (see below) remarks that it is probably found in greater numbers on mummies than any other amulet, and, of course, it could also be worn in life.The word wedjat or udjat meant "the sound one", referring to the eye of the god Horus after it had been plucked out during one of his battles with Seth, and then healed by Thoth. This Horus was the elder (Greek Haroëris), the celestial falcon and great creator god whose right eye was the sun and left eye the moon. It is generally supposed that the wedjat was the moon eye, which was "injured" as it waned and "restored" as it waxed each month, but the term might just as well apply to the sun eye, the "sound" one as opposed to the "injured" one. When Osiris rose to pre-eminence as the god of the dead, the wedjat became identified with the eye of his son Horus. According to the Osiris myth, Horus offered the healed eye to his dead father and so powerful a charm was it that it restored him to life (Andrews 1994, p. 43-44).Size: Length 6.31 cm, height 5.75 cm. The amulet is horizontally pierced for suspension. Mounted on a lucite stand for display.Dating: Third Intermediate Period, 11th-7th century B.C.Condition: A small repair in antiquity.
