Amulet eye OUDJATSold by Mucem Museum
DescriptionThe Udjat eye had a magical function related to prophylaxis, the restoration of wholeness and the vision of the "invisible".
It was represented on sarcophagi and on pectorals.
The countless amulets in the shape of Udjat were worn to protect against "bad luck".
During the mummification,
the embalmers placed it on the incisions they had made.
The Udjat eye was also painted on the prows of boats,
allowing them to "see" and keep their course.
