Painted figures on the prows of boats and amulets for warding off the "evil eye", sometimes themselves called "evil eyes", are used around the Mediterranean and connected seas (North Africa, the Levant, Turkey, Greece, Albania, southern Italy and Spain) and further afield (parts of the Black Sea coast, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Portugal and Latin America).
Amulets against the evil eye that show concentric discs are also widely used in the same region, including in Turkey where they are called nazars:
The idea of the malevolent stare features in many cultures, including for example in connection with Balor in Irish mythology, who has become known as Balor of the Evil Eye.
But what about symbols for warding off the evil eye? Have any featured in the cultures of northern, northwestern or eastern Europe that are related to the ones used in the Mediterranean region?
