Vestigial remains of the Eye of Horus


Wadjet - Eye of Horus
a) Once I worked out the heavy inspiration from embalming ritual image form Necronom IV, I had on my computer page a selection of Googled Egyptian images which contained somewhere down the line Eye Of Horus and I had my Necronom IV image open and I noticed something similar about the latter's pipes to the structure of the Eye Of Horus, and it made more sense when I turned the Necronom IV painting upside down and remembered the fact that when I turned the Necronom painting around I found some clues to how it might have inspired part of the structure of the Space Jockey and its contraption at which it sits.

b) We're told about the Eye of Horus symbol: "The Wadjet (or Ujat, meaning "Whole One") is a powerful symbol of protection in ancient Egypt also known as the "Eye of Horus" and the "all seeing eye". The symbol was frequently used in jewellery made of gold, silver, lapis, wood, porcelain, and carnelian, to ensure the safety and health of the bearer and provide wisdom and prosperity. However, it was also known as the "Eye of Ra", a powerful destructive force linked with the fierce heat of the sun which was described as the "Daughter of Ra". The "eye" was personified as the goddess Wadjet and associated with a number of other gods and goddesses (notably Hathor, Bast, Sekhmet, Tefnut, Nekhbet and Mut).

c) If we further look at Egyptian symbolism, we can take the Necronom image, flipping upside down and back to front. The pipes begin to resemble the lines that make up the eyebrow and eye rim of the Eye of Horus. The coil at the end of the part that sprouts from below the Eye of Horus to the right can be compared to the phallic rear part of the creature's long cranium.
