Egyptian bronze and alabaster sarcophagus eyes, Late period, 664-332 B.C.

In all cultures, the eye has been a vital symbol because the visual organ is one of the most important in the human being. Precisely for this reason men took it to the divine spheres and related it to the concept of light and luminous energy. The human eye is an element that appears represented since the V Dynasty. Although its exact meaning is unknown, it may have been related to the ability to perceive evil and it was a powerful amulet against negative forces. Eyes of symmetrical type that come from an anthropomorphic representation from which they have been torn. Probably from a sculpture or sarcophagus. Made of bronze, bone and polychrome.
