ARTWORK SAGA 7:

EGYPTIAN AMULET
Rehoboth Beach, DE.
1983

This amulet was given to me by Ed. His father was in Egypt on assignment with the CIA when a friend gave him several ORIGINAL, ANCIENT pieces. They have been authenticated by a museum as during the time of the Egyptian dynasties!
The "EYE OF HORUS" is a powerful symbol of protection. This symbol was often used in jewelry to ensure the safety and health of the bearer and provide wisdom and prosperity.

The "PEACOCK" is a symbol of immortality because the ancients believed the peacock ha flesh that did not decay after death.

"HORUS" is the falcon god. It served many functions, most notably being the god of the Sky, god of War and god of Protection.
