The Eye of Ra is a famous ancient Egyptian symbol. It was present in many different forms, from hieroglyphs to carvings. In some cases, the eye acts in multiple female-related relationships to the God Ra, such as mother, sibling, consort, and even daughter. So her role is multi-faceted. The Eye of Ra/Re/Rah has been called the “eye of truth,” because it was believed to be able to see anything, and nothing could escape its watchful gaze. Some say the eye is simply a metaphor for the sun, and that it is the Eye of Ra (the Sun God) looking out onto his creation.
Typically, the Egyptian Eye of Ra represented the destructive power of the sun, which nevertheless was one of the most important parts of Egyptian life. This is because it represented all life, since without the sun they would not be able to grow crops and live as a society. It also represents truth and justice, and its power over nature (life) is seen in many places throughout Egyptian history. It was often used as a symbol of royal authority, along with the crook and flail. The Eye of Ra was also believed to be able to see anything, which is why it was often placed above doorways or entrances in temples- so that no one could escape its watchful gaze.
