The Eye of Horus is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health. The eye is personified in the goddess Wadjet (also written as Wedjat, or "Udjat", Uadjet, Wedjoyet, Edjo or Uto). It is also known as ''The Eye of Ra''.
In ancient Egyptian religion, the sun disk became a primary symbol of Ra, the sun. The sun disk was carved over the doorways of many Egyptian tombs and temples, and it appears on many papyri. The sun disk is often shown being carried on the wings and head of Horus.
