The wedjet eye amulet represents a human eye with its brow, but the two lines below the eye are often identified as the facial markings of a falcon. The wedjet eye was supposedly the eye that Seth ripped from Horus during a battle over who would lead the gods. Thoth healed the injured eye, returning it to Horus as the "sound one." The wedjet eye amulets were worn from the beginning of the Old Kingdom to the end of the pharaonic era. Whether strung on a bracelet for everyday wear or tucked among mummy wrappings, a wedjet eye amulet was very effective against the evil eye - (SP.644)
