Instantly recognizable, the Udjat Eye (also wedjat, uzat) remained one of the most popular amulet symbols from the Old Kingdom to Roman times. Although Egyptians designed countless variations on the theme over this 2500 year period, the basic design remained constant: the eye of the God Horus, drawn as a human eye with a cosmetic line extending from the outer corner of the eye, an enhanced eyebrow line, and a stylized marking below the eye evoking the cheek of a falcon. Provenance: Private collection, the Netherlands, acquired in the 1970s. Size: 24 mm long
