The eye of horus

"The Eye of Horus became an important Egyptian symbol of power.

Horus had a man's body and a falcon's head.

Horus fought with Set for the throne of Egypt.

In this battle one of his eyes was injured and later it was healed by Isis. This healing of the eye became a symbol of renewal."
