Greece. The evil eye is an apotropaic visual device, is dating back to Greece in at least the 6th century BC, when it commonly appeared on drinking vessels. The significance of the evil eye is especially prominent in the Mediterranean and West Asia. The evil eye is a “look” or “stare” bad luck for the person at whom it is directed for reasons of envy or dislike. This means that most believe that where ever your evil eye is facing, that is where is it protecting, so people put they eye facing their front doors or around their neck so that it is facing towards the evil to stare at it.
