Ancient Symbol of Healing, Protection and Magic  

Greetings,
This time you are invited to embark on a journey to ancient Egypt and to one of the most recognizable symbols of this ancient culture.The Eye of Horus also known as The Eye of Ra, is an ancient Egyptian symbol, of protection, health, royalty and sovereignty. The Eye was a representation of the goddess wadjet, protector of lower Egypt, and after the unification of the two kingdom, she became the patron of Egypt, and the eye became a symbol of royal power.

Since many of the symbols in my jewelry revolve around the theme or idea of a journey (spiritual or physical), the Eye of Horus is a perfect symbol for this matter, because it was for the ancient egyptians a powerful symbol intended to protect and to ward off evil. it was also a symbol for protection and safe journey in the afterlife. Ancient Egyptian and Near Eastern sailors would frequently paint the symbol on the bow of their vessel to ensure safe sea travel.

The image of the eye was actually taken from the image of a falcon’s eye. The falcon was the symbol of Horus, the god of the Sky, and the rich fertile black land. In mythology, it was said that his right eye was the Sun and his left eye was the Moon, and that they traversed the sky, when he, in the image of a falcon flew across it. According to myth, his left eye, became the pale moon, when his nemesis, the god Seth (ruler of the desert, the god of storm, disorder and chaos) gouged his eye during one of their battles. He was healed and restored by Thoth, the god of knowledge and magic, hence, the eye became a symbol of protection, magic and healing.

The symbol on the sides of the ring is the Egyptian Lotus flower. The source and the center of life in the Sahara desert region of the upper and lower kingdoms of Egypt was of course the Nile, which produced so many myths for the Egyptians. Nymphaea caerulea, also known as the Blue Egyptian water lily or sacred blue lily was a common water lily and an integral part of the Nile's ecosystem. For the Egyptians it was one of the most magnificent images, so it doesn't come as a surprise that it became one of the most revered and sacred symbols in their culture.

The sacred blue lotus is one of the most common symbols in the Egyptian art. It can be found in ancient temples and tombs of the ancient kingdom. Most of the times the blue lotus can be found in scenes of celebrations, dances, religious ceremonies, religious festivals and spiritual and sacred contexts. For the ancient Egyptians, the beautiful blue lotus holds deep meaning and symbolism. The Blue lotus rising during the day from the Nile along with the Sun, It's blue sky color with it's sun like glowing deep yellow center, symbolized the sun itself. It's sweet scent welcomed the morning and symbolized life and it's sinking during the night time marked darkness death and the afterlife. That is why it is a symbol of creation, life , sun and rebirth.

One of the ancient creation myths tells the creation story of the Sun god Ra. In all of these ancient creation myths there is an infinite lifeless endless sea and darkness known as "NU"  which covered everything; and in that distant past known as the "Zep Tepi" - the first cause/occasion, and the first thing that rose from these waters was a pyramid shaped mound that was called "Benben". From that mound the first thing that came to existence was the Sun as the Sun god-Ra who rose from a giant lotus flower which rose from that mound out of the endless ocean, giving light and life to the cosmos.

These myths derived directly from the flooding of the Nile.The mounds of soil that were left after the receding of the water and the beautiful Lotus were the source of inspiration for these ancient myths, and since the Egyptian religion dealt with the afterlife the lotus became a symbol of rebirth and life and can be found in ancient tombs, and scenes of the passage to the next life.

The Book of the Dead, Papyrus of Hunefer-spell of being transformed into a lotus says:
"I am this pure Lotus which went forth from the sunshine,which is at the nose of Ra; I have descended that I may seek it for Horus, for I am the pure one who issued from the marsh"

The image that accompanied this prayer was that of the deceased head emerging from a lotus flower with this prayer, where he asks to become a lotus flower so that he will gain eternal life.
