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 eye of Horus symbol also represents G-d within everything. The triangle
around the eye of Horus is a symbol of creation. The composition of the eye
of Horus inside the triangle represents the cosmic unity that cannot be grasped
with our six senses but exists in all of nature.
