What does the eye of Anubis mean?
There is no "eye of Anubis" in ancient Egyptian understanding. The frequent use of "eye of Ra" or "eye of Horus" more often than not refers to a protective goddess counterpart to Ra or Horus who takes revenge upon the enemies of that god. The symbol of the "eye of Horus" is actually that of the goddess Wadjet, patron of Lower Egypt and protector goddess of pharaohs. In Egyptian myth the eye was not the passive organ of sight but more an agent of action, protection or wrath. It also symbolized sacrifice, healing, and restoration.
