Wadjet eye amulet
A small, engraved, translucent carnelian wadjet eye amulet. The wadjet eye or 'Eye of Horus' was worn in life as well as death. Egyptian religion told a story of how Seth took out Horus's eye and how it was restored and healed by Hathor/Thoth. The eye was therefore a symbol of completeness.
