Belief in the negative powers of the Evil Eye and various amulets and protective charms against it has been around almost as long as the human race. Virtually every country, language, and religion has definitions pertaining to the evil eye's power to cause all types of misfortunes and even death. Dating back even before ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians and Mesopotamians, amulets to protect people against being 'cursed' by the evil eye have been excavated in the ruins of these societies, and are still very much desired by people today. These charms are particularly popular in African and Middle Eastern cultures, with evil protective amulets not only worn by people on their person, but also mounted near the inside entrance of their homes as well.

You can usually determine someone’s emotional state just by looking into that person’s eyes. You can see if he or she is happy, sad, angry or tired by looking at the expression in the eyes. In some cultures, the eyes are believed to hold mystic powers, which can deliver misfortune to whomever the gaze is directed to.
