The Eye of Horus was intimately associated with the Egyptian Sky God Horus and was often used as a symbol of divine protection, sacrifice, healing and restoration.
Egyptian sailors painted the Eye of Horus on the bows of their boats before setting sail on long and perilous voyages. The eye both guided the vessel and served as a deterrent to malefic forces. It was also a symbol of the will of the gods over the mortal world and used in funerary ceremonies. It was meant to be a guiding eye as the pharaoh made his journey from the land of the living to the land of the dead.
