Evil Eye Protection Bag Toggle Amulet

CAD $20.00

The evil eye is a curse or legend 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, while others believe it to be a kind of supernatural force that casts or reflects a malevolent gaze back-upon those who wish harm upon others (especially innocents). Talismans or amulets created to protect against the evil eye are also frequently called “evil eyes”.

Attempts to ward off the curse of the evil eye have resulted in a number of talismans in many cultures. As a class, they are called “apotropaic” (Greek for “prophylactic” / προφυλακτικός or “protective”, literally: “turns away”) talismans, meaning that they turn away or turn back harm.

Disks or balls, consisting of concentric blue and white circles (usually, from inside to outside, dark blue, light blue, white, and dark blue) representing an evil eye are common apotropaic talismans in West Asia, found on the prows of Mediterranean boats and elsewhere; in some forms of the folklore, the staring eyes are supposed to bend the malicious gaze back to the sorcerer.

Known as nazar (Turkish: nazar boncuğu or nazarlık), this talisman is most frequently seen in Turkey, found in or on houses and vehicles or worn as beads.

Perfect for your keychain, bag, purse, or zipper pull.

You will receive 1 set of evil eyes on a gold plated toggle.
