The representation of the benevolent eye is an amulet that serves to ward off its polar opposite: the evil eye. Thus, in Ancient Egypt, the udjat eye had functions related to the vision of the invisible, and in the Greek world, the ophtalmoi guided and protected ships. Today, the Nazar boncuk - widely used in Turkey, Iran and Armenia - protects against the "assassin look."
