The Eye of Horus


Do you have something in your house that you believe brings you good luck or protects you from evil spirits? Do you ever cross your fingers for good luck when the lottery numbers are being picked? If you went into a house in Birmingham you might see statues of gods or horseshoes over the door to bring good luck. The people who lived in the house that we are in believed in many different gods. One of the most powerful of these gods had a man's body and a hawk's head and was called 'Horus'. If you look at the eye of a hawk, you can see that it is the same shape as this lucky charm.
