The Eye of Horus is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power, and good health. The Eye of Horus is similar to the Eye of Ra, which belongs to a different god, Ra, but represents many of the same concepts.
The eye of Horus was often used to symbolise sacrifice, healing, restoration, and protection.
Ancient Egyptian and Middle-Eastern sailors would frequently paint the symbol on the bows of their vessels to ensure safe sea travel.
Horus was the ancient Egyptian sky god who was usually depicted as a falcon. The eye symbol represents the marking around the eye of the falcon, including the "teardrop" marking sometimes found below the eye.
