The Eye of Horus is one of several ancient Egyptian symbols instantly recognizable as originating from that advanced civilization which has left the world so many wonders of architecture and learning. The hieroglyphic is named for the god, Horus, one of their most powerful and dominant deitie


The Eye of Horus – Origins of the Name

The Eye of Horus was originally called ‘Wedjat’, with ‘Wadjet’, ‘Udjat’ and ‘Wedjoyet’ being variations of the pronunciation. The eye itself was considered a personification of a goddess with that name.

Her name stems from ‘wadj’, the word for ‘green’ and she was called ‘the green one’. Records of her existence as an object of worship predates the existence of almost all of the other gods of the ancient Egyptian pantheon.The renowned “per-nu” shrine of the Nile delta was considered to be under her protection. Wadjet was also the tutelary deity of lower Egypt.

 However, despite the intimate relationship between the shape and this goddess, Egyptian mythology indisputably prefers its association with the god, Horus.


The Elements that Constitute the Eye of Horus

The Eye of Horus is not as simple as most others from the ancient world that represented gods and goddesses. Compared to Wiccan, Norse, Buddhist and Hindu symbols for major gods and goddesses, the Eye of Horus has more individual lines and a complicated overall structure not as easy to reproduce as other symbols of comparable import.

The “Wedjat”or Eye of Horus looks like the region of the left eye as seen from the front. An arched line that tapers into the horizontal is at the very top. Below it, and following its shape in an almost parallel fashion, is the top of the eye.

A pupil is enclosed between this top line and one that closely mirrors it below. The pupil is usually colored in. Below the shape of the eye, towards the right (which is closer to the center of the eye) is an almost vertical line.Its shape and position mimics a stream of tears and this element of the design is itself often called simply ‘The tear’.

The final element of the design is a long, sweeping line that originates at the point where the ‘tear’ meets the eye, and extends to the left (the outside of the eye). This line culminates in a spiral.

While the individual physiological representations are fairly easy to decipher, the Eye of Horus also had deeper meaning incorporated into the shapes that emerge when it is drawn.

Here, there are six elements; one each for the five senses of human perception and the last for thought:

  • Thought is represented by the eyebrow, sitting above the eye like the brain does.
  • The pupil represents sight as it is the aperture through which the light we see passes
  • The triangular shape between the pupil and the inside of the eye symbolizes hearing.
  • The triangular shape between the pupil and the outside of the eye represents the sense of smell.
  • The sweeping, spiral-ended curve is taken to be an illustration of the tongue and the sense of taste.

Of course, as with any symbol, modern or ancient, interpretation is the gist of not just understanding but of veneration.
