The history of the eye of Horus
This eye of Horus, also frequently called "eye Udjat", represents the eye of the falcon god Horus.
In Egyptian mythology, the god Set takes the power in Egypt after murdering his brother Osiris, the father of Horus. Wanting to avenge Osiris, Horus goes to war against his uncle. At the end of many battles, Set is defeated and Horus takes again the throne of Egypt.
However, during a battle, Horus loses an eye. This eye, broken into 6 pieces, is reconstituted and improved by the ibis-headed god Thoth and returned to its owner. The Udjat eye is born and became the symbol of the victory of good over evil.
The Egyptian eye
The eye of Horus was used in Egypt as a kind of lucky charm. Ancient Egyptians also thought that this eye was capable of keeping them in great physical condition.
