Eye of Horus

In Egypt, the symbol of a sacred Eye of Horus (or Ra or Maat) was painted above doors, and on coffins and on the bows of boats. As Horus was the Sun God, the all-seeing eye was a symbol of protection, clarity, and wisdom. During the Dynastic period, two eyes, "udjatti" were very important as amulets, generally understood as representing two ways of seeing by way of the sun and the moon, and were particularly valued for protection against many evils.
