Gold Eye Of Ra Nekhbet Wadjet Necklace , 18K Gold Filled Sterling Silver Pendant , Egyptian Jewelry
Nekhbet/Wadjat/Eye of Ra' pendant.
It was one of the most important symbols in ancient Egypt. It is often seen as an amulet in the form of "Nekhbet-wadjat-eye".
In the Pyramid Texts two “evil eyes” are mentioned, which seal the door-catch. It was believed that the sun and the moon were the eyes of the god Horus of whom it was written that “when he opens his eyes he fills the universe with light and when he shuts them darkness appears”. The name “Osiris” means “place of the eye” and until the 18th Dynasty, the left-hand side of a coffin was decorated with a pair of eyes so the deceased could see his way through heaven.
At the end of the New Kingdom, the eye was also depicted on mummies in the area of the breast or feet, meaning the eyes of Horus, which were offered to the deceased.
Protective eye amulets were worn by both the living and the dead; the eye represented a unified Egypt, and action, anger or protection. The eye was associated with the barque: “your right eye is the evening barque; your left eye is the morning barque”. Read more about the Eye of Horus and Eye of Ra
