The evil eye (or 'mati' in Greek, meaning 'eye') is a superstitious token believed in Greece and in other parts of the Balkans and near east, to protect the wearer from malicious thoughts or wishes; its origin is ancient, possibly originating in Minoan Greece. Typically the eye should be blue, to repel evil thoughts from blue eyed people, as it is thought that blue eyed people are particularly prone to 'give' the evil eye! It is often combined in Greece with a cross (to represent orthodox christianity).
