The Eye of Horus (also known as the Eye of Ra) is the Symbol that identifies the Rebirth. The Eye of Horus is an Egyptian Hieroglyph that resembles a human eye with a forehead and a line of eyeliner that extends outwards. The lower part represents a stylized plumage of birds, to recall the features of a hawk attributed to the God. Used in ancient times as an emblem of royalty and amulet for the protection of the dead, the Eye of Horus was a symbol of indestructibility that favors rebirth, so much so that it was also found under the 12th layer of bandages that wrapped the mummy of Tutankhamun. A symbol in many ways ambiguous, it describes the state of recovered integrity. In the Pharaonic Era, for example, it represented the eternal renewal of the divine kingship of the King of kings. In astronomy, on the other hand, it is the symbol of the Moon that refers to the growing completion of the Moon.
It was said that in ancient times, Egypt was ruled by the God Osiris. He had a brother, Seth, and 2 sisters, Isis and Nephthys. One day Seth, jealous of his brother, treacherously killed him and hid his body. Isis, sister and wife of Osiris, went in search of the body and, after she found it, thanks to her magical arts, she managed to become pregnant with the dead God. Not content, Seth managed to get hold of his brother’s body and reduced it into 14 pieces, which were scattered across the 7 branches of the Nile Delta. Helped by her sister, Isis was able to reassemble the parts of Osiris’s body and resurrect him with the help of the God Anubis. But Osiris, unable to remain on earth, became the king of the kingdom of the dead. The son of Osiris and Isis, Horus, was thus raised by his mother in great secrecy in the papyrus of the Delta. Once an adult, Horus ousted his cruel uncle Seth from the throne. Thanks to the constant help of his mother and after a fight in which he lost an eye, the final victory over Seth allowed Horus to become the new ruler of all Egypt.
The Eye of Horus was represented not only as a protective amulet, but also to indicate which part of the Brain should be relied upon for particular “inner work“. (Eye of Horus & Pineal Gland & Dreams). During the discovery of one’s own higher self, in fact, reference was made to the Eye of Horus to indicate that whoever exhibited it was “awake and conscious” in the reality in which they find themselves. The Eye of Horus, therefore, has also performed a particular protective function, mindful of the psyche, which will be activated to remain “alert” so as to escape from any external attacks. Rebirth is a word that not only has a literal meaning, but also indicates a strong renewal. A change of direction, a collective or individual turning point, capable of changing life. Over the centuries, many peoples have adopted this concept in their traditions, then giving it specific characters and, often, combining them with a figurative element. Symbols, figures, images: rebirth is shown in different ways, each linked to a specific tradition, to a precise meaning. “Eye of Horus Symbol of Rebirth” Statue sizes: 12 inches / 30.5 cm x 1.5 inches / 4 cm x 8.5 inches / 21.5 cm.
