Small, pale green faience wedjet eye with black pupil, pierced horizontally.  

During his contentions with his uncle Seth, Horus is said to have lost his left eye although later the goddess Hathor was able to restore it. The udjat or wadjet eye therefore came to symbolize the general process of "making whole" and healing. One of the most popular amulets, it also served as a metaphor for protection (against the evil eye), strength, and perfection.    Condition: Some minor weathering to the surface and pitting of the glaze, modern black pigment identification number applied to back, otherwise intact and in good condition  

Condition:    Intact and in very condition overall.

Dimensions:     Length: 13 mm (0.5 inches)

Provenance:  RDA private collection, acquired from the NY trade as part of a collection assembled in the 1970's and 1980's.
