The Eye of Horus

The Eye of Horus, also known as wadjet, wedjat or udjat, is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power, and good health. The Eye of Horus is similar to the Eye of Ra, which belongs to a different god, Ra, but represents many of the same concepts. 
My painterly interpretation of the Eye of Horus,  which includes feelings of joy, celebration, creative exuberance and peace.

    Very interesting. In astrology, the Gate of Horus is the boundary between Cancer and Leo, the signs governed by the Moon and the Sun respectively. This point of the zodiac is also known as the Gate of Heaven – the passage to the upper plane.
    From this point, the other signs are built, on the left and on the right, according to the proximity of their ruling planets in relation to the Sun. Thus, there are Gemini and Virgo ruled by Mercury; then, Taurus and Libra, ruled by Venus, and so on.
    The eye of Horus, in this sense, seems to point in the same direction, the point in the infinite where all good comes from.
    And congratulations on the drawings. Your pictorial and coloristic exuberance is something that enchants.
