What’s most fasinating about the Evil Eye isn’t its mere longivity, but the fact that its usage has deviated little over the course of millennia.  We’re still affixing the Evil Eye to the sides of our planes in the same way that the Egyptians and Etruscans painted the eye on the prows of their ships to ensure safe passage. It’s still a tradition in Turkey to bring an Evil Eye token to newborn babies, echoing the belief that young children are often the most susceptible to the curse.
