Throughout the whole human history, in every culture and religion, the eye figure has been considered as a powerful talisman to defy evil forces...
We find this figure in Jewish, Christian and Muslim cultures as well as Buddhist and Hindu societies. This common tradition finds a new identity in the 3000 years old glass craftsmanship of Anatolia. A glass master combines the power of the eye figure with the power of the fire and creates a new talisman: THE EVIL EYE BEAD.
It is believed that the Evil Eye deflects the negative energy that is being directed towards a person onto itself, thus dispersing its powers. The Evil Eye is blue in color and the age-old Anatolian belief is that it is actually the blue color of the stone, which holds the real shielding power and absorbs the negative energy. That is why; front doors of houses in these Mediterranean countries are painted blue to ward off evil spirits.
The evil eye pendant is attached to anything and everything that, it is felt, will attract envy and greed. Thus, you will find a Turkish man attaching the evil eye pendant in front of his house or office, hanging it from the neck of his newborn child, or his farm animals and even on his newly acquired machinery. In Hebrew Evil Eye is called "ayin ha'ra". In mainland Italian it is "mal occhio" ( the bad eye ) and in Spanish "mal ojo" or "el ojo" ( the bad eye or just the eye ). In Sicily it is "jettatore" ( the protection from the eye ) and in Farsi it is "bla band" ( the eye of evil ). The Evil Eye is also known as "ayin harsha" in Arabic, "droch shuil" in Scotland, "mauvais oeil" in France, "büsen Blick" in Germany and was known as "oculus malus" among the classical Romans.
So the idea is to protect yourself, your house, your office or the beloved ones.
