Sterling silver sheet has the Eye of Ra symbol hand sawn. I soldered the sterling silver on to the copper. I hammered the edges and added patina for contrast. The 1.2 x 1.1 inch pendant comes on an 18 inch faux leather cord with a 2 inch extender. The Eye of Ra or Eye of Re is a being in ancient Egyptian mythology that functions as a feminine counterpart to the sun god Ra and a violent force that subdues his enemies. The Eye is an extension of Ra's power, equated with the disk of the sun, but it also behaves as an independent entity, which can be personified by a wide variety of Egyptian goddesses, including Hathor, Sekhmet, Bastet, Wadjet, and Mut. The Eye goddess acts as mother, sibling, consort, and daughter of the sun god. She is his partner in the creative cycle in which he begets the renewed form of himself that is born at dawn.
