the evil eye...

When it comes to warding off the mystic malevolent forces of the world, there is perhaps no charm more recognised or renowned than the

‘evil eye’.

The evil eye is a curse believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when they are unaware. Many cultures believe that receiving the evil eye will cause misfortune or injury. Talismans created to protect against the evil eye are also frequently called "evil eyes".
