The notion of the “evil eye” is firmly rooted in Greek folklore, dating back to classical antiquity. The term was, in fact, mentioned by such prominent ancient Greek figures as Hesiod, Callimachus, Plato, Theocritus and Plutarch.
This is believed to protect against negative energy deriving from envious or malevolent stares, often referred as “the evil eye”.
This good luck charm is commonly known as Mati (Greek for “eye”).
Note: Since this evil eye is handmade and hand painted, a slight differentiation from the website’s product pictures is possible.
