An unusually large eye of Horus, lost in the struggle with Seth. He later recovered his eye sound and well. Thus it was also called the udjat-eye (udjat = intact, complete, healthy). This eye became the symbol for everything to do with completion and healing, and was also involved in protection, perfection and power. The udjat-eye is  an apotropaic symbol protecting against the evil eye, and in a wider sense against all imaginable dangers.
