MEANING: Horus was the son of two of the main gods in Egyptian mythology, Isis and Osiris. Horus had an evil uncle Set (or Seth) who murdered Osiris, the father of Horus. Horus did battle with Seth to avenge his father's murder. During the fight, Seth plucked out Horus' left eye and tore it apart. Thoth (god of wisdom and magic) found the eye, pieced it together and added some magic. He returned the eye to Horus, who in turn gave it to his murdered father Osiris, thereby bringing him back to life.
"The Eye of Horus (or 'udjat') became a powerful symbol in ancient Egypt. It was worn as an amulet to ensure good health and ward off sickness. The Eye of Horus is depicted as a human eye and eyebrow, decorated with the markings seen under the eyes of falcons since Horus had the head of a falcon. The right eye represented the sun and the left eye the moon....
As the Eye was used as an amulet to ensure good health and ward off sickness, it eventually became a symbol for apothecaries (who were also doctors). Apothecaries would create compounds of medical herbs and drugs for their patients...as times passed, apothecaries became pharmacists and the Left Eye of Horus symbol became the origin of the pharmacist’s symbol for prescription, ‘Rx’

THE CARVING:
My Carvings are single pieces of western red cedar, designed and carved to be wall hangings. Each piece is finished with a blend of clear oils that brings out the natural color of the wood. For more information on the process of creation, please see my profile.

SIZE:
The last picture has the piece on a quilting board, lined up on the 1 inch marks. So subtract 1 inch from the height and width for the stock size. Measurements may vary slightly from piece to piece.
