    A gold finished pendant in the shape of the Eye of Horus.

    The eye of Horus was a common motif used by the ancient Egyptians. It was a symbol of protection, royal power and good health.

    The story of Horus, the sky god whose symbol was the falcon, appears in the ancient pyramid texts. The "Horus Eye" emerges from the historic battle between Horus and his father's jealous brother. This became the symbol of all sacrifice and appears throughout ancient Egyptian art.
