The Eye of Horus
Known for its healing powers, the Eye of Horus was commonly worn as an amulet. It depicts the shattered eye of Horus, and was representative of the six senses which is why it was divided into six parts. According to mythology, Horus’ eye was torn out during a fight and because the gods favored Horus, restored the eye. It is said that Horus had a white eye and a black eye - the white eye representing the sun; and the black eye representing the moon. You can see the Eye of Horus on most hieroglyphics and paintings, where it is represented as a human eye that has been embellished.
