The "Eye of Horus" was a symbol of protection in Ancient Egypt. Sometimes called the "Wadget Eye", it was frequently featured in Ancient Egyptian art.  It's popularity extends to modern times. In this design, it is stitched with silk, cotton and metallic threads! Beads and metallic threads add a touch of glitter and a nice texture to the finished work!

You may frame your finished work, or use it to decorate a tote bag or a decorative pillow!
