<p>Pendant featuring the god Horus as a falcon perched on a deep blue lapis stone. <br /> <br /> Lapis lazuli was commonly used in ancient Egypt, particularly in depicting the gods and goddesses. <br /> <br /> 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.</p>

Exclusive to the British Museum, a pendant necklace featuring the ancient Egyptian god Horus.

This beautiful pendant has been crafted of gold-plated sterling silver, and shows the god Horus in the form of a falcon perched atop a deep blue lapis lazuli stone.  

Horus was the ancient Egyptian god of the sky, whose right eye was thought to be the sun, and whose left eye, the moon. According to myth, Horus was defeated in a fight by the desert god Set during which his left eye was damaged, and later healed by Thoth, leading to the ‘broken’ appearance of the moon in the night sky.

The stone lapis lazuli was highly prized in ancient Egypt, where it was inlaid into jewellery and ornaments including death masks and shabtis.

An astonishing gift inspired by ancient Egypt.
