Scarab Inscribed with an Wedjat Eye

New Kingdom

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 130

The base of this scarab displays a single wedjat-eye, the eye of Horus and symbol of good health and wellbeing. As the single, principal motif on the base of seal-amulets, it is particularly popular on scarabs of the New Kingdom.
