eye of horus egypt

It represents the eye of the god Horus and its origin is in a battle that Horus fought to avenge his father Osiris, since he had died in the Nile River at the hands of his own brother Seth. Horus confronts Seth and it is in that battle that he loses his left eye and ends up torn into 6 parts. Those six pieces represented the senses: sight, smell, thought, touch, taste and hearing. Then the god of wisdom, Thoth, finds them and fixes the eye, which is why it symbolizes rebirth and healing.

Today this symbol is also known as the all-seeing eye and in Egyptian " udjat " which means " the one who is complete ". Although it is also related to other names such as the eye of Cleopatra or the eye of Anubis, they really have no relation to the original story.
