Description

A popular amulet in ancient Egypt, the wedjat eye—also known as the eye of Horus, the falcon god of kingship—represented healing, regeneration, and protection. A pair of vividly embroidered eyes with the wing and legs of a falcon gaze benevolently from this pillow, which nods to an ancient faience amulet (ca. 1070–664 B.C.) in The Met collection. This particular eye in the Museum's holdings is especially intriguing for its addition of a cobra.
