During the Third Intermediate Period, (1070 BC- 664 BC) examples of multiple wedjat eyes appear, in belief that more protection would be bestowed upon the wearer than with a single Wedjat . Some are just one eye placed upon the other and others are often carved into a scaraboid form.

|This rare faience amulet is a disk that presents a convex side with
eight human eyes neatly arranged in four rows, and a flat reverse side
with a single, large, deeply engraved Udjat eye with the traditional black
markings. It was probably worn as a pendant, offering twenty nine times
the magic power of a single eye pendant.
“The function of an eye amulet, reinforced by multiple forms,
was the provision of sight in the Other World.” (Andrews 1994:69-70)
