Offering the Eye

Continuing along in the Epagnomel Days, after Wesir's birthday, it is now Heru's birthday (aka Horus the Elder).

Statuettes that show Thoth presenting of the Eye of Horus (wedjat) depict his mythological role as the healer of Horus during his contendings with Set.

Thoth heals both of the combatants. In TeVelde's Seth, God of Confusion, the lector-priest speaking as Thoth (Djhwty) "who reconciles the gods" declares:

The distress that causes confusion, has been driven away, and all the gods are in harmony.
I have given Horus his eye, placed the wadjet-eye in the correct position.
I have given Seth his testicles, so that the two lords are content through the work of my hands. (page 50)

For those keeping up with the Epagnomel days, the third day is Set's birthday.

And here are my drawing inspirations, a statuette at Chicago's OIM, and some wadjet eyes at the Met.
