Of deep blue glass, the profile depicted only.

Background: The wedjat-eye amulet represents a human eye with its brow, but the two lines below the eye are often identified as the facial markings of a falcon. The wedjet-eye was supposedly the eye that Seth tore from Horus during a battle over who would lead the gods. Thoth healed the injured eye, returning it to Horus as the "sound one." Wedjat-eye amulets were used from the Old Kingdom through the Roman Period and whether worn as a bracelet for everyday wear or tucked among mummy wrappings, this amulet was an effective source of protection, strength and perfection.

Dimensions: Length: 2 cm (0.78 inches)

Condition: With minor losses and expected wear to the surface, intact.

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