The Eye of Horus

It's definitely getting colder out and it's time to start breaking out those jackets and coats... nothing really jazzes up a jacket like a rad patch and we've got a bunch in the shop right now with a ton of awesome signs and symbols. 
My personal favorite is this 'Eye of Horus' Patch, 
only $6!!!


The Eye of Horus is the Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health. Just what you need to warn off flu season and cold weather downer vibes.  
Horus was the Egyptian god of the sky and is most often seen as a falcon and his right eye was associated with the sun god, Ra.


In one well known myth, Horus' eye is gouged out in a fight and he offers the eye to his father Osiris in hopes of saving his life. For this reason, the eye is often seen as a symbol for sacrifice, healing and protection.
