How many of you are into Ancient Egyptian tales and lore? There are a few things that I find boring and even though I’m not that big on knowing a bunch of Egyptian history, I still know a thing or two about a thing or two. This next tutorial is going to be on a symbol that the Egyptians worshiped and linked a belief to. Today I will make another lesson on "how to draw eye of Horus", step by step. I initially made a tattoo version of this very same symbol, only I called it the eye of Ra. Both Horus and Ra correlate with one another, and I;ll try to explain. Now Horus was and probably is still considered to be a sky god, and this sky god was supposed to be both the sun and moon. In later years, Horus the sky god was then associated with the sun, and later became Ra-Horakhty. This god was now Ra, and it is also known as being Horus of the two horizons. Now that there is Ra as the sun God, Thoth was now considered to be the moon god. It’s basically complicated to put into words; I guess you would just have to read up on the history of Horus. I may have gotten some information wrong, but that’s because I haven’t read or even put myself into the books of Ancient Egyptian history for a very long while. The only thing I can do with one hundred percent certainty is show you "how to draw eye of Horus". I hope you have fun, and remember this would also make a great tattoo. Peace people!
