This May Catch Your (Evil) Eye

The โ€œevil eyeโ€ is actually a curse that supposedly befalls those who receive a malignant look from others, traditionally inspired by jealousy (yikes).

The belief in this curse and production of the evil eye talismans has spread over various religions and periods, though heavily centered in West Asia and Islamic culture. It has only been since the mid 20th century that the evil eye has reached popularity in Western culture.
