Gioconda - Eyes

Is there any similarity here between the shading and contours of the Lady's eyes (left) and the Eyes of Horus (right)?

This interesting "coincidence" reminds us that in essence, the Divine "Father" and the Divine "Mother" are the same Divine Being.  Divine "Father" is the male polarity while Divine "Mother" is the female polarity.  Although both are opposite polarities, these make up One and Only One Unit: the Creator.  This "Dual" Nature of the Only Creator can be compared with a single battery cell, which we all know is composed of two opposite (positive and negative) polarities.  

"So G-d created man in His own image; in the image of G-d He created him; male and female He created them." (Gen. 1.27*).  This "man" is an androgynous being that existed before the "single-sex" beings that dwell on Earth today, and in the context of this Biblical quote, "man" is plural (i.e., there were many androgynous beings being created at the "image" of the Creator).  

"And the Lord G-d caused deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place.  Then the rib which the Lord G-d has taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man." (Gen. 2.21-22).  Needless it is to say that approximately several thousands of years went by between the "incident" portrayed in Gen. 1.27 and the "incident" portrayed in Gen. 2.21-22.  [This second quote is brought for ensuring that the "dual-opposites" nature of the Creator is understood, as "women" "appeared" later on.]
