Wadjet fractionsThe Eye of Horus was believed to have healing and protective power, and it was used as a protective amulet. It was also used as a notation of measurement, particularly for measuring the ingredients in medicines and pigments. The symbol was divided into six parts, representing the shattering of Horus´ eye into six pieces. Each piece was associated with one of the six senses and a specific fraction.
Eye of Horus/Ra. i just started thinking about getting this as a tattoo. i have Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and since the Eye was used to represent sacrifice, healing, restoration, and protection i figure it is a good idea :D
An interesting interpretation of "the eye of Rah"- an ancient Egyptian spiritual symbol. It reminds me of the illustration on the tarot cards in the movie "Now You See Me". I wonder if it would work painted around somebody's eye in real life... Any volunteers?
