The Eye of Horus is also known as Wedjat Eye or Udjat Eye, and the name Horus also comes in many different forms, such as Har, Her, Haroeris or Harakhte. The Eye of Horus is a very common symbol and one of the most famous symbols of ancient Egypt. It has a very special origin and protective power, so the Eye of Horus has always served as a talisman.


Eye of Horus Mythology

Have you ever wondered about the meaning and story behind the Horus Eye? It is said that this symbol is a big part of ancient Egyptian mythology, so let’s find out together.


In Egyptian mythology, Osiris had two siblings, one of whom was Set. In order to seize power and control the kingdom, Set killed his own brother Osiris, and cut his body into 14 pieces and scattered them all over to prevent him from entering the underworld after his death. The ancient Egyptians believed that in order to enter the underworld, the body had to be intact, embalmed and buried before the soul could enter the underworld to be judged.


With the help of the goddess Nephthys, Osiris’s wife Isis eventually put the scattered body parts back together, and Osiris came back to life. However, gods who have died cannot rule over the living again, and so Osiris became the god of the dead. The main figure of this myth, Horus, is the son of Osiris, who grew up to avenge his father’s death and defeated Set to inherit rule over all.


Ancient symbol of mathematics and medicine

The Eye of Horus is also an embodiment of mathematics and medicine, and is also considered to be one of the oldest mathematical concepts. If Eye of Horus is considered to be scattered all over the world in six parts like the myth, then these six parts represent the fractions 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32 and 1/64, and these fractions form a geometric series. Isn’t it surprising when advanced mathematics appeared as far back as 2300 B.C.?

The left eye symbolizes the moon. According to Egyptian mythology, Horus lost his left eye during the battle with Set, but it was miraculously restored by Hathor. In this sense, it symbolizes health, restoration, and a discernment of good and evil, so the left eye is often used as a talisman.
