Coptic Pope with one eye open one eye closed on top of his crown. The Eye of Horus is on the right. When placed on the right, it becomes The Eye of Ra, which looks to the sun for guidance.
The ancient Egyptian Eye of Horus or wedjat ('Whole One'), the symbol of protection, is worn to ward off evil spirits and to confer wisdom, health and prosperity. The Coptic Pope followed Thomas and broke with the Vatican. He knows the Vatican’s secrets, closes his eyes to much of what he sees while looking to the sun for guidance as he prays to God.
