THE ALL-SEEING EYE OF HORUS
The image above and below is the Eye of Horus, an ancient Egyptian symbol of royal power, good health and protection.
Horus was one of the most significant deities for ancient Egyptians and was often depicted as a falcon, most likely a lanner or peregrine, or as a man with a falcon head.
Below is a peregrine falcon. With these images, do you see a pattern?
WHO IS MA’AT?
Maat or Ma’at embodied the ancient Egyptian concept of balance, order, truth, harmony, morality, justice and law. She was also personified as a goddess who controlled the seasons and the stars, as well as the actions of gods and mortals. Ma’at organized order from chaos. She decided whether a person would reach the afterlife by weighing her or his soul against her feather of truth, represented by the ostrich feather in her headdress. A feather became the hieroglyph for “truth.” Below Ma’at is pictured with Isis who is seated. The winged arms of Ma’at surround a cartouche.
