Artist's Description

“The Eye of Horus” is an Ancient Egyptian symbol of protection. Horus was the Falcon-headed god, son of Osiris, protector of the Pharaoh. The Wadjet or Udjat Eye was a very important, powerful, and very common sacred symbol. It was carved on monuments, drawn on papyrus, and painted on household objects, ships, and the walls of tombs and temples. Amulets of The Eye were worn as jewelry, and wrapped with mummies to protect them from evil spirits as they made their way through the afterlife.

This Collection features aged & distressed Hieroglyphs on an Egyptian Blue background, inspired by the painted decorations in the 18th Dynasty tomb of Horemheb at Saqqara. The aging allows the background color to show through in spots, giving the design the feeling of real vintage hieroglyphic inscriptions as they’re seen today in Egypt. The hieroglyphs were created following the custom, design, colors, and artistry of the Egyptians, carefully researched to ensure their accuracy and authenticity.

The Eye of Horus design is available on adult & kid’s t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, tank tops, leggings, mugs, tote bags, wall art, stickers, phone and laptop cases, home goods, pillows, and accessories.
