Seller: hawkeye_treasures (296) 97.3%, Location: default, NO, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 183759958451 DescriptionCode: r1090 \ Material: Old wound glass Weight: 15 g. Size: 30mm. Eye beads were commonly seen as apotropaic [apotropaic: having the power to prevent evil or bad luck], their primary function being that of protecting against the ‘Evil Eye.’. . . Seen from a more general perspective, the Evil Eye concept can be regarded as symbolizing the fears and anxieties we all face. It is indeed encountered in diverse cultures and periods of time. . . Even so, there may have been instances in which eye beads were appreciated more for their decorative value. Any symbol in use for a long time is likely to become part of convention and tradition and lose some of its magical application in the process.”
