Ancient Egyptian Art – Eye of Horus

This Egyptian Eye of Horus relief decorative collectible is quite an exquisite piece for a classical home or office interior design. It is ideal for your ancient art and museum replica interior decor. The eye of Horus also called Oudjat or Wedjat, is the left lunar eye which originates from the struggle btween Horus and Seth. In this fight, Horus loses his left eye which is taken by Seth, but then Horus acquires spiritual sight, the eye of light. The eye was later healed by Thoth and returned to Horus and then called the Oudjat (the Whole One). It was a symbol of the power of the God of light, and therefore a popular amulet for protection and good luck.
