Lanner Falcon - Eye of Horus

Medium: Watercolor. 9 X 10 inches.

The ninth of ten paintings for my M.F.A. thesis, An Illustrative Exploration of Birds of Prey in History and Culture.

The Egyptian god Horus was seen as a lanner falcon, with the strong under-eye malar stripe and large eye symbolic of the Eye of
Horus. The sun and moon, behind the falcon's head, represent his eyes.
