I've spent a lot of time lately in cultures that have a belief in a malevolent glare casting a curse. Talismans are required to ward off the evil eye, and they are often worn on the body as jewelry, or hung in a home. The talismans are usually called evil eyes too, though Wikipedia tells me they are nazars. The first use of them goes back to the Phoenicians, and they've spread throughout the Middle East, West Asia, and the Mediterranean. I figured it was past time for me to make an evil eye.
