The Eye of Horus was a powerful symbol of protection in Ancient Egypt, also known as the Wedjet, (or Ujat, meaning "Whole One") and the "all seeing eye". It was believed to have healing and protective power and was used as a protective amulet. If one eye was powerful, then the power of three would have been a surety.
