I see so many people mistake the Eye of Ra for the Eye of Horus.
The Eye of Horus is the LEFT EYE, which corresponds with the rising of the moon in the West (this is where the Egyptians buried their dead, by the way, because they believed the West was where the sun died and so this is where people would go when they were ready to be taken to the Afterlife), because in the Contendings of Horus and Seth, Horus’ left eye was gouged out by Seth, and then Djehuty(Thoth) god of the moon, writing, and knowledge, replaced Horus’ left eye with moonlight. After Horus defeated Seth, Horus presented the eye to Osiris (former chief deity and war god, now the god of the Afterlife and Horus’ father/brother). Horus then became the Pharaoh of the gods, and also the god of war.
The Eye of Ra is the RIGHT EYE. It corresponds to the rising of the sun in the East. Now, the Eye of Ra is different. There are multiple stories for the Eye of Ra, but the most popular is the one about Wadjet (who is also the Eye of Horus, just as she is the Eye of Ra). The Right Eye was sent out by Atum (one of THE most important gods in the Egyptian pantheon) to look for his children, Tefnut (goddess of rain/water) and Shu (god of air/atmosphere/wind), who were lost in the waters of Nun (the primordial ocean, also known as Nu, who is sometimes considered the “father” of Ra (sun god) and Apep (primordial serpent deity reigning over chaos, darkness, and other destructive forces that Egyptians feared). Once the Eye found Tefnut and Shu, it brought them back to Atum, and as a reward, Atum turned the Eye into a winged cobra and placed it on his forehead, just above his brows. This was so that the serpent could see all, so that evil could never escape her clutches, and so that she could “rule the world”. This is how Wadjet (the winged serpent, known as a uraei) was “born”. She also became a protector of Horus when he was a child. Her sister is Nekhbet, the vulture goddess. This story also explains why we see the cobra on top of the Pharaoh’s crown.
So, please, when you are drawing art of the Eyes, make sure you are using the correct eye. It is very disheartening to see the wrong eye used because they are NOT the same. I know this is because of a lack of information, but please make sure you research about these things before you try to make art of it so you don’t accidentally use the wrong symbol.
