Nazar Boncugu. That’s the name of the blue eye. The blue eye you see everywhere in Turkey. Not only in the touristy jewellery shops, but also in restaurants, B&Bs, shops and tea houses, on gift wrapping and even on government buildings and expensive fancy hotels in Istanbul.
The blue eye protects the Turks from the evil eye (the eye of Horus) and they even believe that Nazar Boncugu will send the negative energy back to the one that wishes you harm. The blue eye protects you from the bad.
Since I wish all people who read my blog good things, happiness and luck in their lives, I’d thought I’d post some really pretty blue eyes.
