An Egyptian ankh necklace
According to the Heliopolitan mythology (the most widespread version of Egyptian mythology, which comes from the ancient city Heliopolis), Geb (the god who represents the country of Egypt) and his wife-sister Nut (the goddess which represents the sky of Egypt) got four children: two men (Osiris and Set) and two women (Isis and Nephthys). Osiris marries Isis while Set marries Nephthys.
The Egyptian legend called "myth of Osiris" tells the countless confrontations between Osiris and his brother Set (who progressively became the Egyptian god of evil). Through a trick, Set manages to murder Osiris, dismembering him into 14 parts and hiding his remains throughout Egypt to prevent Isis from rebuilding her husband’s body.
A pendant from ancient Egypt
Indeed, learning what has happened, Isis searched every piece of Osiris, day and night, in every corner of Egypt. Finally, she managed to recover all the remains of her husband and used her divine powers to revive him, who will now be in charge of reigning in the land of the dead, the Duat.
Moreover, by using her divine powers, Isis was able to conceive a son of resurrected Osiris: Horus. Shortly after his birth, Horus is hidden by his mother and left in the care of Thoth, the god of wisdom, who instructed and raised him to become an exceptional warrior.
When he came of age, helped by the crocodile god Sobek, he fought against Set to regain the throne of his father, killed by this latter. In one of these fights, Horus lost his left eye and Thoth gave him a new magical one able to see the future: the "eye of Horus" was born.
