Egyptian Ptolemaic Faience Amulet - Eye of Horus
Item Details
Description
**Originally Listed At $150**

Egypt, Ptolemaic period, 26th Dynasty, ca. 525 to 30 BCE. A lovely blue-green faience wedjat (wadjet, udjat) amulet depicting the Eye of Horus. An almond-shaped eye with a stylized pupil rests in the center of a thick faience body with a thick body near the side of the eye itself. An arching pierced loop rests above the eye and is meant for suspension. Symbolic of health, healing, and protection, the wadjet is one of the oldest Egyptian symbols. In ancient Egyptian mythos, the falcon god Horus controlled the skies, the sun, and the moon. The sun (represented as the right eye of Horus) rose each day and gave life-giving energy to the crops and gods alike; when the sun set, the moon (represented as the left eye of Horus) rose over the land and provided a guiding path to the afterlife for the recently-deceased. Size: 1.05" W x 0.75" H (2.7 cm x 1.9 cm).

Provenance: private Jones collection, Boulder, Colorado, USA
