The “Eye of Ra” was a popular symbol for the peoples of Ancient Egypt. Since the Egyptian gods were intertwined over a 3000 year reign, this symbol is also referred to as the “Eye of Horus”, or the “Eye of Thoth”. Horus is the Egyptian Solar God and Avenger of Evil; Thoth is the Egyptian God of the Moon, responsible for the development of the calendar, writing, poetry, magic and knowledge.
Legend says that the right-facing eye represents the Sun God, “Ra” and the left-facing eye represents the Moon God, “Aah”. Our “Udjat” is double-sided and can be worn as a left or right eye, allowing the wearer to invoke the blessings and protection of either the Sun-god or the Moon-god while still possessing the Magic of both. The “Udjat” or all-seeing eye exemplifies good health, soundness of mind, self-protection, physical comfort and well-being, and defense against all negativity.
