    £120.00 Members' price *


    Pendant featuring the god Horus as a falcon perched on a deep blue lapis stone.

    Lapis lazuli was commonly used in ancient Egypt, particularly in depicting the gods and goddesses.

    Horus was an Egyptian sky god who took the form of a falcon, whose right eye was the sun and his left eye the moon. According to myth, in a fight where Horus was defeated by the god of the desert, Setekh of Ombos, Horus’ moon eye was damaged and healed by the god Thoth, but from then onwards the moon appeared at night in broken pieces.
