Single-sided, the bright blue glaze contrasting nicely with the raised black pupil and brow, pierced horizontally for attachment.

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 wedjet 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:  Intact and in excellent condition overall.  A very fine example.

Provenance:  Private English collection acquired from Nefer Ancient Art, London, before 1983.
